Ahhh, India… I’ve wanted to come to this country for 20 years, and 2014 finally brought home the goods – a month in Rajasthan. Such a joyous riot of colour and pattern and vibrant living, a mass of inspiration. Here are just a very few of my favourite images from a yet-to-be-sifted haul of photos.
Much of this is old havelis (beautiful old merchant houses) and their palatial stonework and decorative approach to the everyday.
…and some things are just colour – layers of advertisement wall painting fading appealingly in the sunshine or jobbing elephants at an ancient fort.
