    So we leave the straight road and head to the hills, going to the mighty Kumbhalgarh fortress - and near a river we stop, the girls wanting to train their zooms on kids swimming and women washing clothes on the dhobi ghat there. I step down too, realizing that the place is too far for my 50mm, eve with the doubler, so we enjoy the sight and sit.

    And under a tree, just nearby, two ladies wait for the bus. Meet Grandma.

    Morning after, we wake up in the tiny Ghanerao Castle, and the kind people there agrees to show us around town, chatting about things old and new.

    Turn a few corners, have a cup of chai, watch builders on a new home.

    Afternoon, to the west, in a village half tribe and half sect, the Bishnoi even set up a visitors' center to arrange safaris in the bush. But chatting around tea is most welcome.

    And while the people with the big cameras work their magic, nobody watches us.

    Alf, you constantly push your own envelope...with success I might add.
    Very nice images. The viewer is unaware of your presence.
    Post more please and...don't leave the street for a spell.

    Alf, I do have to mention just one itty bitty thing....
    Just because your mindset is doing street, you could still write those wonderful stories about what's going on.
    I for one and I'm sure I speak for many, really enjoy...
