The front of the cinema “Raj Mandir” in Jaipur.
I actually saw the movie on the poster. “Delhii 6″ but with no English subtitles it was kind of hard to follow the action.

Family Outing

I was walking around and making pictures at Hawa Mahal in Jaipur, India – I’ll post more from there later on – when this family man asked me if I would be so kind and make a picture of them, I said yes but on one condition that I could make a picture of them with My own camera, he agreed and we both got our photos.

I duplicated this photo to two layers in Photoshop, the top layer I made to look like this old faded photo, and on the second layer i boosted the colors around 30%. I then made a layer mask and masked back the two women’s very colorful clothes.

Well, My Dubai trip is almost over – going home tomorrow – but I’m heading to Japan for 24 days on June 23rd, which I’m really looking forward to, cause Japan is at the top of my travel destination list.

And as always I’m gonna ask you if you know any places that I shouldn’t miss?
I’ll be spending most of my time there in Tokyo and about a week driving around the country side, heading for Hiroshima among other places, so mainly going south of Tokyo.

If you are a photographer or just living in Tokyo – or if you know someone who does – and wants to meet, please drop me an email, and we’ll take it from there.

To all Buzz and Twitters please re-share – thanks.

The photo is from Jaipur, India, where I was out walking one day with no particular destination in mind, as you all know I just like to get out and walk around foreign places to get a sense of the atmosphere, of course with My camera by My side.
On this walk I came across this guy, who looked a little sad as if his date hadn’t showed up, and we all know that feeling, right?.

It’s quiet amazing who much stuff they can put on a bike in India. When walking around the streets of any Indian city you’ll see these overloaded cargo bikes all over the place.
Some are too heavy to ride, and have to be pull like this guys doing.
