These photos were taken during a trip through Rajasthan, a province in central/north India known for its colorful clothing. The small town and rural India we experienced was exceedingly friendly and open. The challenges are there, the problems run deep, but these are a beautiful people and I pray for the future of India. It's an incredibly place, rich in history and culture, diverse ethnic and language groups, and natural beauty - one of the oldest, most intricate and complex cultures on the planet!
