Leave Australia for Delhi India via Kuala Lumpur Malaysia this Thursday.
Myself and two other photojournalists are off on a three week sojourn around Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and various other parts of the Indian interior – a lot of it in an old Ambassador taxi – to cover, amongst other things, the colourful (and wet) Holi Festival and the Elephant Festival … and any other bits of colour and life we can find. The plan is a little loose but on the road trip so far are Jodhpur, Udaipur, Pushkar, Jaipur, Varanasi, Agra … and it’s odds on we’ll go off the beaten track a little at some stage!
My colleagues are Rob Maccoll and Peter Wallis – both News Ltd staffers based in Brisbane.
Both Nikon Australia (in my case) and Canon (my colleagues) have been very supportive of our upcoming trek and we thank them.
When I get a chance I’ll update the blog with some snippets about what we get up to … and the images we make.
During the trip I will be accessing my email at every opportunity …
