I love, love, love that top photo. Like the Nizamuddin baoli one of yore, would seriously buy a copy and frame it for a wall. We should set up a print-trade....

Some context please, particularly for the second pic.

thanks all.

e: that print trade idea is worth working on you know...I'd buy so many of yours...also please post more photos!

space bar: yes, yes - but must find some publisher first, no?

pan: come online, you!!

Roxana: thanks :) that's my favourite too - and it's got a green window!

km: context:
1.) This was taken at this Geographer pub where we mostly sat and drank away the weekend - lovely place in the old China Town district. They restored an old building (in lovely colours as the window attests) and the red lights were still around from Chinese New Year - rather lovely.

2.)A tile at the mosque in China town. It was a traditional chinese pagoda style structure with some tile work on the walls, and has now been converted to a mosque.

3.) The remaining walls of St. Pauls church. St. Francis Xavier was buried here originally, before his body was taken back to Goa.

4.) Crazy decorations on the waterfront - but the dragon made for a lovely picture with the sun going down.
