Monochrome Madness – Sleep Little Darling

“Sleep Pretty Darling, do not cry And I will sing a lullaby”                              — Adapted from “Golden Slumbers”, the Abbey Road Album. The Beatles The tears will flow and flow, and no lullaby can stem the flood.

Even Royalty Scratches

You know how it is. When you gotta go, you gotta go. When you gotta scratch, you gotta scratch! Some of you saw the royal fella in the Monochrome Madness submission. Here he is, in his coloured glory, sitting on the roof of the car, and scratching away to high glory. It just proves the old adage: Even royalty needs a good scratch now…

Monochrome Madness – The Old Fakir

My contribution for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge, hosted by Leanne Cole I took this shot of the Old Fakir in Pushkar last November. Quite a cool dude, yes?

Monochrome Madness – Good Lawdy Mama!

In God We Trust

Anyone who has been to India would have been privy to a country with a freakishly active street life. This has spawned many a photograph, and photographer, to gush about the colours, the madness, the teeming life, the smells and all that wonderful stuff that is undoubtedly a part of India’s street life. Then, they, and we, retreat into the comfort of our homes,…
