I was born and raised in India but moved to the USA about 20 yrs back.
All these images invoke very strong memories. It also is interesting as these pics are captured thru the foreign eyes. I would probably pass most of these scenes are being every day experiences rather than something exotic.

What a wonderful set! Great portraits and environmentals. And street. Just great!

The "bamboo" is actually sugar cane. But they're both grasses, so close enough! Crushed sugar cane juice is highly popular in India and I remember guzzling down so many cups, especially in the summer.

These were just the few I managed to catch, but it's everywhere. To my western eye it was crazy, but somehow it works. I didn't see any accidents, it's like some immense well prepared ballet!

Thanks! Good to know it's sugar cane. I enjoyed india immensely, it sounds really patronising to say it but everyone I met was keen to chat, kind and interesting. Having lived in London for several years this put me a little on edge, concerned there would be an unseen partner trying to nick my wallet. You're fortunate to have lived there.

Well, as a tourist in a foreign land, some of your fear/uneasiness is justified to a certain extent. But then, people being eager to talk to a foreigner isn't all that unusual around the world, especially in places where one doesn't encounter foreigners on a daily basis. So that might explain a bit of the alacrity with which people talked to you.

Nice to see something different from the usual touristy images from India.
Anyway, very nice set of images. TFS!

After all the hustle and bustle of Bangalore, then slightly less in Mysore, I headed out to see some nature. Firstly the Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, just to the north of Mysore. You could see some birds from the sides of the lake, but the best option was to take a boat. I think it was a few euros for a shared boat or 35 for a private boat. I decided on the latter since I didn't have so much time and wanted to maximise the shooting time and options. So here are some of the better shots, including a Kingfisher, which although no where near the quality of the shots I've seen from many on this forum, I was pleased to capture. If anyone can tell me the names of the other birds, that would really help out my keywords too

Very nice set. Would have been a pleasure seeing your subjects from the boat.
Only bird I can help with is #48, which I saw on beaches on the Kimberley Coast of Western Australia. It is a Beach Stone Curlew or Thick-knee.

You didn't get "a kingfisher" you got four! Four differnt ones (47,53,55 and 56). You can google Indian Kingfishers and look them up yourself easily.

I am not great with birds but I think........

45 are pelicans, 46 is a cattle egret, 49 is not a bird (tricky by name.....), 52 is a painted billed stork

50 and 51 I am really not sure. I could guess but I am pretty useless with Asian birds of prey and those smaller waterbirds, so I would very likely guess wrong.

As Paul said you caught quite a few kingfishers, and Karnataka is one of the best places to find them - http://jlrexplore.com/explore/focus/kingfishers-of-karnataka

When I was a kid we used see quite a few near my house. Since then the city has developed and we don't see as many any more
