India has to be the most photogenic of all the countries we’ve visited. Whether it be the people or the places in India, you don’t have to look hard for an amazing photo opportunity. We filled our camera with thousands of Indian photos while we spent nine weeks in the world’s most diverse land.
The People and Places in India
We started our trip in Delhi, India’s capital city. From there we toured the many places in India including Rajasthan where we explored the region’s many fortresses and slept under the stars in the Thar desert sand dunes. We, of course, visited India’s great wonder, the Taj Mahal. It was here where lenses pointed in our direction. We were the subject of many Indian photos as the locals got in line to take our picture!

We were culture shocked by life surrounding the Ganges river in Varanasi. From burning bodies to religious festivals. The deeply spiritual city is the most extraordinary of all the places in India. Our camera was in overdrive as we added hundreds of Indian photos to our collection.
Then life slowed down as we headed south to Kerala
Golden beaches, lush green jungle and terraced tea plantations in the mountains. We even hired our own private houseboat for a couple of days as we floated through Kerala’s beautiful backwater region.
In complete contrast to Kerala, there’s no avoiding the city hoping via the Indian railway. Mysore, Bangalore and the mighty Mumbai are cities full of colour, grand architecture and interesting faces. The perfect locations for anyone wishing to take Indian photos.
And we won’t forget the historical site of Hampi. Definitely one of our favourite places in India. Cycling around the fascinating rocky landscape from one ruined temple to the next was an amazing experience. You have to go to India!
