Confident CameleerAn image from 2001. Shot on slide film (those were the days) in the early morning at the Pushkar camel festival, India. You can see the rising sun in his eyes. It was wonderful to be wandering in the smoky early morning air with these proud and handsome men and 50,000 equally proud camels all around you.#portrait #photography #India #RvK.

Morning Light in the Garden      added to my HOME series on G+.A somewhat obscure image of the play of light in my garden. Autumn mornings can be very special. This is a series album that now has 16 images. I enjoy the pace of occasionally adding to this album which is something you can do when it’s home.  https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/108092487151722513439/albums/5737172296187074673

Pure LuxuryThe feeling of a close shave is something I haven’t experienced in decades but if I ever decide to drop the beard this is the way to go. This is in India where I will be returning toward the end of the year leading a photo tour.

The Circle TrainThe circle train in Yangon carries around 150000 people daily as it makes it slow way around a 45.9 km circuit. Foreigners need to buy a special ticket which is a little more than the (approx) 10-20cent tickets locals purchase. There are 39 stations.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yangon_Circular_RailwayI wasn’t sure which item to place this but settled on My STREET colour album on G+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/+RobertvanKoesveldPhotography/postswww.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/

Concentrationa master weaver keeps her focus (and patience) as I try to find a way to photograph her and her moving loom. This was in one of the weaving villages that sit above Inle lake in Myanmar. The weavers combine silk with threads made from lotus stem. A 1/25 sec exposure has caught the twang of the shuttle release.www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/

Demons Begone!Setsubun is a tradition in which roasted soy beans are thrown to ward off ogres. In the process getting rid of misfortune and welcoming spring. Peole shout  ”oni wa soto” (demons out) and ”uku wa uchi” (fortune in). This maiko was one of a group engaged in throwing (neatly wrapped) beans at the Yasaka shrine in Kyoto. Earlier they had danced a beautiful  traditional piece. Not easy to photograph since lots of people line up for the prime spots but lots of fun. I didn’t manage to eat the same number of beans as your age so I remain a demon risk area. I did eat the big sushi roll without stopping that is also a part of the tradition, so that’s good at least, luck-wise. www.robertvankoesveld.com  ©Robert van Koesveld Photography http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/
