The sights, sounds and smells of Mahane Yehuda market, Jerusalem

Yes, I might not be able to bring out the sounds and smells of the famous Mahane Yehuda market in Jerusalem but the sights had me spellbound. The light filtered through the translucent covers, the smells of confectionery, fruits, meats and of so much humanity is enough to make any photographer stay on for long. (And I am so sorry for the inordinate delay between the posts. I am back in India and at work.) The 50mm lens was a bit too wide and the 35 mm with autofocus would have been great. But then, it is better to make the best use of your equipment and not make excuses. So without much further ado, go ahead and savour the marketplace.

The railway people

I must have bothered you with the slew of text yesterday. So here is a collection of all the interesting people I met while travelling on the railways in Srilanka. Enjoy. Don’t forget to click on the image to embiggen it.
