Rajasthan – a photographic journey – Part 1

Going back to our roots.

Every now and again we take a Time Out to totally indulge in our passion. And just like fifteen years ago – what fuels our lust for life is travel and photography.

Digital photography has made travel photography more fun!

Since we started out producing travel articles for the Norwegian press some ten years ago, our family has seen the beautiful addition of two little ones. Travelling with kids in tow is a totally beautiful experience, and something we encourage on our blog. However, if we are painfully honest, travelling with the kids also means reduced time to grab the camera and take off whenever we feel like it.

That’s why we spice up our travel agenda with solo trips here, there and everywhere once in a while. This time it was Spencer’s turn to pack his baby (the Nikon), his boots and his sun screen and head off to awe inspiring Rajasthan, by far Mother India’s most colourful corner. He took off with a friend, and they hired two classic Royal Enfields with Bike Escape Motorcycle Journeys.

  1. Hi Vibeke,
    These pictures are amazing, wonderful! Traveling with kids in tow is wonderful, but indeed sometimes you need time for yourself to discover details that you might otherwise have missed.
    I tweeted your blog post and got a response from @amancool5 from India. He thought Photito was my blog, but I promised him to forward you his response: “Well captured Boomen. Just a request though. There is more to Rajasthan than poverty and snake charmers. I’m sure yr blogs 2 will give a balanced view of the state.”

    Please continue to spice up our suburbian lives with these great pictures and stories! 🙂

    • Hi Emiel! Thanks for your encouraging words, and for passing on the tweet message. India is indeed snake charmers, poverty, beauty, dust, proud people and a profound richness. A place where beauty and decay go hand in hand. I hope @amancool5 from India will enjoy the upcoming photos!

      Oh, and as far as you leading a suburbian life… I don’t believe you!

  2. Nice Pictures Vibeke,
    Rajasthan is really a nice place to visit and enjoy the Indian tradition and culture. The most beautiful place in Rajasthan is Jaipur, and Jaisalmer.
    You must have enjoyed your visit there, I must say…

  3. Spencer as always, fantastic photos with excellent subjects. How you convince people to be able to get these shots is beyond me. Well done.

  4. I dont know what to say. This weblog is great. Thats not really a actually huge statement, but its all I could come up with soon after reading this. You know so a lot about this subject. So considerably to ensure that you produced me want to understand far more about it. Your blog is my stepping stone, my friend. Thanks for the heads up on this subject.
