Sorry to hear of the belly demons - often part of the price of admission to Mother India unfortunately. Stellar photo set! I narrowed my favorites down to about 6: several of the camel camp scenes (1,3,4,5), Shiva XXL, and the gypsy girl with bangles and chai (beautiful smile). The colors of India are out of this world. Your pics here make me want to return for another look-see. Cheers - very well captured!

These are amazing! I LOVE photography like this...I don't have the ability to travel now and it gives me a glimpse of another culture and another part of the planet. Awesome!
