I had the pleasure of visiting India for the first time this year and it was everything I imagined and more. I had wanted to go for many years but not got around to going, finally I decided to just go for it and I have to say it truly is magical in every sense of the word.
It is an explosion of the senses, bright vivid colours, incredible smells mostly good but some bad (say no more). Incredible noise, intense traffic and horns in the manic cities to the beautiful sounds of birds and wildlife in the forests and mountains, and on the glorious coastline.
The people of India are fantastic, and the food, oh the food is one of the main reasons I went to India. Being a food photographer and general food and big time curry lover I was in seventh heaven.
Here are some images from the first part of my adventure starting in Tamil Nadu.
