Yesterday morning we boarded our flight to the Blue City of Jodhpur. Upon arrival we checked into the legendary Ajit Bhawan Hotel, built exclusively for Majaraja ir Ajit Sing, it is vibrantly alive with the personalized hospitality provided by the late Maharaja’s family who still lives there. In the afternoon, we toured my favorite areas of the Blue City of Jodhpur. This morning we woke early and spent another 3 hours in the back streets of Jodhpur, it was…..well…..EPIC! This afternoon, we’ll visit the massive fort, royal palaces, the armory and Jaswant Thada – the Royal Crematorium, then do some sunset photography on the cliffs below the fort. I’ll try and post again later today. Meanwhile, enjoy these images.

    Always love to see what you guys come away with when at the Blue City. Looks like Ronnie got in the second photo from the top, too! I took a shot like that once. I was on the back of a motorcycle in the Congo and stuck my arm up to get a photo and ended up getting myself square in the rear view mirror, and in focus. Only, it was totally by chance that it happened, I’m sure yours was planned. Very nice work, love the color/texture of…well everything, in that city.

    Loving these! This is a really nice set. The blurred woman, the man looking right at you on the motorcycle, the man reading the newspaper, the scooters – love them all. Downloading and keeping for future newsletters/blog posts/trip pages.
