I was lucky enough to catch a sunrise at Ghat Ki Guni earlier this week. The serpentine road in this narrow alley has chhatris lined on both sides. It is extremely difficult to capture shots here as the road is narrow and there is a constant flow of traffic. The best way to capture a shot in such a situation is to rely on a quick capture rather than a DSLR which needs time to fine-tune the settings.
This picture captures milk sellers heading to Doodh Mandi ( Jaipur Milk Market) with milk cans loaded on their motorcycles from the villages in the vicinity. Their daily routine starts at 4 AM. If you have not read about Dood Mandi, it is a good time to do so. I wrote this post a couple of years ago, and it is possible you might have missed it.
