My India

that one, over-riding impression that will be forever etched in my memory

sunny 2 °C

India is an intensely personal journey. Everyone comes for their own reasons, and leaves with their own sense of what they saw and, more importantly, learned -- about India and themselves.

We are slightly more than half way into our trip and last night as I lay in bed I found myself reflecting on the kaleidoscope of images, sounds and smells we’ve experienced so far. And what I have discovered is that for me, to understand India you need look no further than into the eyes of the Indian people. There you will see all that this glorious country has to offer you.

Gorgeous photos Fransi! Reminded me of the famous shot of the little girl who appeared on the cover of Nat'l Geographic (and then she was shown again as a mature woman. Very telling and poignant. A beautiful addition to the wonderful stories of your travels. Love Heidi

My goodness Fransi, to have been able to take such personal portraits of these people is really a testament to your own graciousness, honesty and compassion. In so many cultures for a person to allow themselves to be photographed by a stranger is so taboo. These are brilliant shots.
