(Posted in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge – Morning)
I have tons of pictures captured during morning in Jaipur. Many of these have already appeared in my earlier posts. It’s difficult to decide which pictures should I post in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge -Morning.
Let me put together few of these. Some new and some old!
Here is a picture of a girl on way to the school, captured in front of the famous Jagat Shiromani temple in Amer town, near Jaipur.
While the above picture was captured in the old and ancient part of Jaipur city -Amer here is a picture from the new settlements. The below picture was shot at the elevated road which runs below the metro line. It’s unusual to find such low volume of traffic on this busy road except in the morning. Bonus: There’s a “ghost rider” on the right side of frame!!
This elevated road was launched few years ago and it links the city to the national highway leading to the Mumbai; It’s called Jaipur-Ajmer expressway.
You’ll have to excuse me for posting slightly blurred picture of the flower sellers. While capturing this image on a busy walkway a pedestrian pushed me causing a blurred capture; I did not realize it until I saw it on the computer screen! With low light in early morning hours, it does get tricky in such situations! The flower sellers are busy setting up their shop for the day; morning are quite busy for them as there’s lot of work to be done.
Flower sellers have been selling flowers at this place for many years and it’s a well-marked site for buying flowers. There are many temples around and usually devotees stop by to buy the flowers on way to the temple. Of all the flowers being sold here, Marigold is most prominent one.
Elephant ride at Amer palace is very popular among the tourists. In the above picture, elephant is on way to the Amer palace elephant stand. The elephant rides in Amer start around 8 AM but you see elephants arriving at the Amer elephant stand by 7.30 AM.
Central Park in Jaipur is very popular among the morning walkers and runners alike with its 4.5 Km jogging track. Apart from runners and walkers, you can spot many people performing exercise, stretching, pranayam and yoga. You can find few sitting on the bench; catching up & chatting with their friends. Each to his own!
Here are few pictures capturing the morning scene from the posts which have already appeared in the past.
