Getting Water for the Village

Here is a wonderful scene from India. I am sure that people here find these women to be rather commonplace and uninteresting, but I thought all their little movements were photo-worthy. I’m sure they thought I was a nut following them around, so I tried to remain fairly clandestine, so as to not to interrupt their natural behavior. I sort of felt like I was tracking wild animals in their native habitat. That sounds strange, I’m sure!

Yes, I used a texture on this one from one of the texture tutorial packages. Note that I won’t do this for everyone, but I wanted to point you to my friend Scotty Graham’s blog in Indonesia, who is re-selling these textures. If you buy from there, he is donating his profits to children that suffered from the earthquakes in Sumatra. Anyway, as you can tell, he’s a nice guy, and his site is certainly worth a visit!

    great picture, great blog. A little unjustified with the women you called “wild animals in their native”. feels even bad when I am an Indian myself 🙁

    I am an admirer of your pics and in fact I like the feel and freshness while going through your blogs. But somehow it was hard to take this words ‘wild animals in their native’. In fact i too come from a remote village in India and I understand the way they react to strangers. But thats the real beauty of them. Personally, I feel that better words could have been used.

  • AHa – well you should know that I meant I was just hanging out in the background and watching them, following them… the same way I would do when following a wolf in Yellowstone. I didn’t want my presence to inhibit their movements.

    Ever since I spent my last holiday in India, I fell in love with this country. There are so many picturesque ingredients. It was such a wondrous, and cost-effective trip that I thoroughly enjoyed with my friends. I bought a package tour from an online website, and it made my way so easy. I am going to go for another vacation in India may be this year or the next.
