Delhi Through the Lens

There is so many things to see during my stay in New Delhi. Some of them familiar to my sight and others truly new. I would like to borrow fellow blogger GINNIE'S words to describe the experience .... short of eyes. Actually that would be ASTRID's words. In Delhi, I was short of eyes.

Look what my lens captured during my whirlwind tour of New Delhi:

These ambulant water trolleys and snack carts were every where.

The kids took advantage of the fountain water to cool down.

I photograph many people on the street.

And then while stuck in traffic I caught sight of this heart-wrenching scene.

He was under the scorching sun and beneath him is equally hot pavement.

He poured water on him to see if he's conscious. The traffic started to move, I did not see what happened next.

New Delhi to my surprise is very green; it has many open spaces for greenery/park where people can enjoy.

On the 7th day of our tour where we were back to Delhi after touring the rest of Agra and Jaipur, we saw how the roads are really like without the work day traffic. It's so green and so beautiful and the streets are wide.

I'm also impressed by these art installations which I believe is made to mimic dew.

  5. Great photos! The overflowing food carts and octopus electrical connections somehow remind me of the Philippines.

    It's interesting to see a lady sweeping the grounds in such a nice and colorful dress.

    Hope that man lying on the pavement is alright.

  9. My ex-hubby was in India many, many years ago and saw the splendor as well as the squalor. It's especially hard to see it side by side. I can just imagine how "short of eyes" you must have been this entire trip. And your images really do speak more than a thousand words!

  10. With the exception of photos 6 & 7, all the photos here are drive by shots. I only saw the photos of people picking their noses after I have uploaded the images. It was all accidental.
