A portrait of two fine young women taken in Aihole Village in rural Karnataka.

I love the way village folk are so friendly and not in anyway fazed by the camera.

……and having seen the temple bells in yesterday’s post, here we see one of the happy couples as they step out of the temple ready to be greeted by family and friends.

Temple Bells

 

I came across the Virupaksha temple bells in a dark corner while following a wedding party around the temple. A peaceful corner on a happy, noisy, wind band sort of Saturday when most of the village had gathered to celebrate three weddings. An unexpected find at an unexpected event.

 

 

In the Footsteps of Tendulkar

In the Footsteps of Tendulkar

 

 

Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer widely acknowledged as one of the greatest batsmen of all time and no doubt an inspiration to boys in every village throughout India, like these in Aihole where they were playing in front of one of the many temples in the village.

Threave Castle

Threave Castle

 

A washed out looking Dumfries & Galloway Castle that’s sited on an island on the River Dee. Many of the castles in the region are basically fortified tower houses, the ruins of which can be spied standing in lonely isolation in fields, hidden by trees, or standing next to farm buildings.
