aroma, flower market, flowers, Fujifilm X-Pro1, India, Jaipur, marigolds, Rajasthan
Six themed shots from the archives at www.timbirdphotography.com
Jaipur, in the Indian state of Rajasthan, has an especially colourful morning flower market. Marigolds are sold by the sackful for temple decorations and garlands. Vegetables are on sale too, but it’s the bustling activity, the early morning light illuminating the bursting sacks of flowers and the aroma of rose and marigold petals that make this place special.
Nerdy stuff: all taken with a Fujifilm X-Pro1 camera with 18mm and 35mm lenses – some of the first shots I took using this camera. This was the first “system” camera in the Fujifilm X Series and although subsequent cameras have made big improvements, with faster focus and more features, this has maintained its appeal. It’s still my number one choice for so-called street photography. It’s back to basics: aperture and shutter speed with the digital equivalent of film speed, and a pair of alert and open eyes.
