“Rajasthani Rhapsody”

 

India, Rajasthan, Udaipur, embroidered fabric

Rajasthan is famous for its hand-embroidered fabrics.

This piece was hanging on display outside a shop in Udaipur, India. Though it was shot as a two-dimensional subject, a slight breeze created the undulating effect in its design.

“Camel Fair Flair”

 

India, Rajasthan, Pushkar, decorated and painted camel

 

Twenty thousand camels come to Pushkar, India, during the full moon of November each year.

Often there’s much competition amongst camel herders when it comes to decorating their camels for the festival. This one had his fur shaved to form this pattern and to serve as a background for a painted design.

“Fabric Fantasy”

 

India, Rajasthan, Jaipur, textile, embroidery

 

Color in India has a way of grabbing me.

Something inside me lets fly with the thrill. Usually I zero in on a very tight composition trying to isolate intensity. I like the punch and the kick of raw color and bold design is a bonus that can send me over the edge.

“Rocket to the Moon”

India, Rajasthan, Jaipur, Diwali Festival, Indian fireworks


The skies and buildings in India light up each year for the Diwali Festival of Lights. Officially it’s a celebration of Rama’s and Sita’s homecoming in the historical Ramayana story. All across the country it’s a joyous time of giving and receiving sweets and setting off firecrackers and sky rockets like these, which were on sale at just about every street corner of major cities during the five days of festivities.

“Circular Whimsy”Vietnam, Hoi An, fabric with circle designs

This is a close-up detail of fabric found at a shop in Hoi An, Vietnam.

Circles by their very nature have the capacity to define limits. I’ve never been led astray by a circle . . . perhaps because its boundaries are so confined. Give me some circles and magic light and I become ecstatic with the possibilities.

It’s the simple things in life that can launch us into art.

“Big Buddha Bliss”Myanmar, Burma, Monywa, Bodhi Tataung Complex, 423-foot standing Buddha

Buddhas come big in Burma. This one in Monywa near Mandalay is 423 feet tall. That’s about 40 stories. Notice the scale of the very tiny person way in the distance at the top of the stairs on the left. While not all forms of Buddhism involve the worship of Buddha¬†statues, the sects in Myanmar certainly do and many of the statues are huge. This glowy, black and white infrared effect was created in Photoshop from a color image using my new GASP Photoshop Actions.

See more Burma photos in my Myanmar blog post, “Burma Splash Bubble.”

“Sequin Fantasy”Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, Saigon, Cholon District, fabric textile embroidered with sequins

This is another image from my sequin series shot in Vietnam. The orderly rows of scarlet sequins seemed on fire but with closer inspection I could see that all the sequins were just plain silver shiny ones. The brilliant saturated red was being reflected from objects behind me. My silhouette blocked the crimson rays and thats why the center section only reflected neutral tones. I was wearing a black shirt and trousers.

See more photos like this in my Vietnam blog post, “Hanoi Turtle.”
