While I wait for the next jaunt I’m filling in the time with some collections of some of my favourite photos from the past few years.
Along with peeling paint and endless buildings I also have HUGE fascination for markets, food, textiles, herbs, spices, kitchen utensils – you name it, I love to snap it.
No matter where in the world I’ve been, whether Thailand, Italy, Greece or Hong Kong, I always seem to gravitate towards them.
Here’s just a few of the many many colourful market memories from recent trips.
The mobile crisp cart plies its trade in Sadar Market in Jodhpur while an onion seller poses in Pushkar and a colourful sari clad woman waits for customers.
This collection are all from our fantastic trip to India back in 2010. Travelling from Delhi, across Rajasthan and ending in balmy Kerela.
Under the sweltering sun this pair of street sellers in Pushkar display a wealth of luscious produce for the passing crowds.
A customer haggles for the best possible prices in the Clock Tower market – women often seem to drive the hardest bargains!
This thoughtful woman was sat in the middle of the hectic Clock Tower / Sadar Market in Jodphur. She’s an oasis of calm amongst a whirl of humanity.
Meanwhile the back streets are crammed full of family run stalls that are stacked high with packages, boxes, bags and tubs of snacks.
This rather sombre looking stall holder stands guard behind a colourful, neatly stacked selection of goodies in the blue city.
These mobile veg sellers stroll along the pavements of Jaipur offering a tantilising array of gorgeous vegetables. Even the smallest of stalls is immaculately set out, its wares perfectly arranged as if in a high class shop window.
Finally I get caught out snapping these ladies with their perfectly stacked baskets of vegetables.
