The whole experience was a big fun: just seeing those awesome skylines created by the Fort walls, the landscapes, the water and the sky, the colors of the Amber Fort was a great visual entertainment.The elephants need the special attention. I shot a ton of pictures of them and noticed that, actually the elephants don’t look absolutely the same. I even took a picture of the elephant behind from the top while I was on the elephant – have you ever seen their skin and hair up close?
The Amber Fort on its own deserves the special album, and I did post more picture of that architectural masterpiece on my blog earlier.
Modern India is colorful and I would say layered. I think the great example is on the fourth picture from the top. That how I understand India now, and I might be mistaken in my opinion, however I based it on what I’ve seen, and what I captured with my camera. India is very rich in traditions, cultural heritage, beautiful architecture from the old times, unique crafts and arts, however I had to learn how to see beyond the poverty, and people living in slams, endless dirt everywhere and tons of plastic covering the whole country.We hear a lot that the country is on economical rise, however it’s obvious that investment into the social life of Indians is almost not existing. At that picture you can see the glimpse of the beautiful temple on the background, some children running around at the time they should be in school, and of cause so loved holy cows nibbling on some garbage on the front ground. That is India as is in 21st century.
