I’m so excited to start sharing photos from my trip to India and Jocelyn and Praket’s wedding. Our two-week trip was amazing, and I took an absolutely ludicrous number of photos. Because of that, I’m breaking my sharing of the photos up into some chunks. This week, I’ll be sharing some travel photos from Ranchi, the city where the wedding was, and some wedding prep photos. Next week, we’ll get into the thick of it with lots of photos from the wedding and wedding festivities. Then I’ll take a little break, and later on I’ll share some travel photos from New Delhi and from Amsterdam, where we stopped on our way back. Here are some of my favorites from Ranchi. It’s a smaller city in the east of India and it’s very naturally beautiful. I love all the color and texture that we found there.
I love this blue bicycle below. In fact, I loved all the bicycles we saw in India. Most of them are very old and have a really cool style, and people would be riding them with bare feet or carrying baskets of stuff with them on their way.
We saw a lot of street food, but couldn’t eat it. It looked so amazing, though.
One morning, Eric and I were up at about 6 a.m. because of jetlag and we went out on a bit of a photo expedition as the sun rose. Because the streets are normally so crowded, it was a fun time to see some of the details without the chaos of trying to watch out for cars and bikes and motorcycles.
Whenever kids would see us, they would run over and say hello or want to take their pictures with us. These kids let me take their photo one morning.
I’m so lucky that I got to take this trip and see this part of the world! I’ll be back on Thursday to share some prep photos from Jocelyn and Praket’s wedding.
