Here is a photo of some India street photography.

In 2013, I went to India for one month. I spent three weeks in Jaipur and one week traveling around Delhi and up north. This is one of the few photos I have of some India street photography.

One day, I was in a rickshaw, going somewhere. I don’t know where. A temple or palace maybe. Something touristy, no doubt.

I was still getting used to the noise, crowds, and excitement of India. For example, scooters and motorbikes with two, three, four, even five people on them. It was surprising to see two parents with three children clinging to them. And the women often sat sideways, colourful saris blowing in the breeze. Of course, there were not enough helmets for everyone. It was scary just to watch.

Anyway, at one point in the Pink City we stopped at a red light. Scooters, rickshaws, and cars moved forward and stopped to fill in the space. I looked out the side of the scooter to see a woman drive up with her young son holding tight and looking back over her shoulder.

It was very cute the way he was peaking over her shoulder, watching the world go by.

I thought it was a beautiful moment and quickly pulled out my camera. Luckily, I had just enough time at the red light to snap this quick picture, all the while he was watching me. Sorry, little boy, for not asking your permission…

This post in response to the weekly travel theme: eyes. Check out this link to see posts by others about “eyes.” I thought this photo of mine fit in nicely with the theme.

I hope you enjoyed this picture of some India street photography. Thanks for reading, and please subscribe to my blog to read and see more about my trips.
