The Colours and Clothes of India




Before I went to India, someone said to me that the one thing that would linger in my mind long after my trip would be the colour.  They certainly weren't wrong.  Its strength and vibrancy on the clothes, the food, the streets, even the evening sun was incredible.  Every hue of red, pink and turquoise surrounded us daily, especially in the everyday attire of the women.  I loved just how intricately decorated their saris were and the glimmering jingle of their multitude of bangles.  Needless to say, I returned home with a stack of my own and a renewed approach to wearing such bright pieces.

In wondered where you had gone my dear! now I know you were traveling and enjoying life!
What an amazing trip- just looked through the photos...incredible- When I was in my early 20's I traveled EVERYWHERE (at least it felt like that, I have even been to Iraq) but I have never been to India- looks like I have missed out...breathtaking.
Loving all the vibrant colors..and the BANGLES!!!

These are beautiful photos. I would love to go to India someday. Thanks for the comment too. I actually started off with a two column template for my blog that I tweaked, but you should be able to specify the widths on the HTML side of your blog layout.
