    I’d be interested to hear from friends into their photography, including Matthew, Phil, Angela, Nilgun, Louie, Michael, Mike David, Tim et al. Some street photography for you…

      Jamie’s photos really capture Jodhpur well. I want to go back (in fact we are going back, probably in December).
      I MISS INDIA!!!

    Blue city? More like rainbow city, awesome. Enjoyed the details, the composition to include background details etc. I know people are often happier to be photographed than westerners, but you’re obviously interacting well which makes it an experience getting the shot, and not everyone is brave enough. Looking forward to the long lens/minimum aperture shallow DOF stuff that emphasises a subject so well (with the new cam?). If I’m not being presumptuous, love to see you getting off eye-level a bit more, then hearing tales of laying in gutters and hanging from lamposts in the quest… Thx for sharing.

      Thanks to both Mikes for your comments. Of course these were taken six months ago and every photography project marks a step forward in improvement. I’ve moved on even from these shots but your points about shifting away from eye level is something I’ve only recently taken on board; crouching whilst shooting kids is something I learnt off Mike Longhurst, for example. Unfortunately you won’t see anything on this blog from the new camera/lens for a while yet, Mike, but hopefully you’ll see improvements in technicalities over the next few months. You know how it is, you never stop learning 😉
