India Part 1: Patterns patterns patterns

My trip to India was very interesting. I hadn't visited the place for 3.5 years. When I first left almost 5 years I was quite disillusioned by the country and just couldn't fit in or identify myself as an Indian. After staying in the UK for a while I think I have a greater appreciation for the place. I feel very proud of it now, the culture, the heritage, the values it's given me. I don't think I would be able to go back and live there anymore but this time when I did go, I could see beauty in things I would have totally dismissed when I was living there.

Taking the bananas for a walk

Colours tied together

Pineapples for sale

Seeds of Life


The lady with the bangles

A mountain of food

Fabrics anyone?
I guess discovering photography as my expression helps me narrate my experiences. Here is India (more like New Delhi) through my eyes...
I'm obsessed with patterns! Anything that is repeated or tiles instantly attracts me. And I finally realised where my obsession came from. I could see pattern everywhere I went... art, architecture, textiles, food, clothes, on the street. I particularly loved taking pictures of street sellers with their neatly stacked-up objects. You could see they are really proud of their products with the amount of effort they take in displaying and make them look so beautiful!
