When traveling through Northern India, I was intrigued by two facets of the country. One was the striking beauty of their ancient buildings, forts, and temples, whose colors have been softened by time.  The other was the crowded, tumultuous streets and overflowing markets, populated by people, especially women, dressed in glorious bright colors.  This is where real life took place.  I tried to portray a little of each in my images, and hopefully the wonderful light seeps through in both.
