A Royal Wedding In Jodhpur

We went to a royal wedding in Jodhpur, our wonderful Rajasthani guide obtained an invitation for us through the bride’s family. The rituals and colors  were amazing, with many maharajahs and diplomats in attendance. There was a marvelous  procession: the groom entered on a white horse dressed in gold brocade with  many of the maharaja’s walking  beside him,  drums, horns and bells were blaring and prayers were offered. They were greeted by guests ready with marigold garlands to drape over their heads.  The men carried antique family swords wrapped in scarfs – its called peace tying. Their colorful turbans flowed down their backs and some wore beautiful turban jewels. Quiite a site…
The women were in a different area, at this wedding they celebrated separately.IMG_8012

Mark Twain: “So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked.”

The Varanasi Ganga Aarti takes place every sunset at holy Dasaswamedh Ghat, near Kashi Vishwanath Temple.

Incredible India

“An enchanted world is one that speaks to the soul, to the mysterious depths of the heart and imagination.” Sir Thomas More (1478_1535)

There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place.

Just returned from traveling in India with my wonderful sister and other photographers that are now new friends. It was a magical mystery tour – images and tales to follow…

The Hermit Kingdom of Ladakh

Ladakh, or “Little Tibet” as it is known, is a wildly beautiful desert region high in the Western Himalayas. It is a place of few resources and an extreme climate, and a culture over 1000 years old. Leh, Ladakh, a fabled city, is  on the ancient silk route.

In the month of September, the ‘moonscape’ of Ladakh comes alive with a magic of its own. The people, wearing  gold and silver ornaments and turquoise headpieces, dance in  the streets. Traditional dances depict the many legends of Ladakh, the hermit kingdom. Ancient monasteries sport flags in a riot of colors, display tankhas and have archery competitions,  horse-polo, and more .

Leaving Tuesday, finally, after many earlier summer plans went awry…I wonder how it will be…
