Once again our motley crew of photographers got together this weekend for a photowalk. The mood in the group was to do some street photography. So, laden with our paraphernalia we reached Chandni Chowk.

After about 5 minutes of entering the bustling old Delhi market, all of us had a pretty confused look! We started walking about, and kept wondering what to do and where to click, as the whole place seemed like any other crowded market.
A quick decision saw us loaded on a cycle rikshaw heading towards Jama Masjid. By the time we reached there, evening Namaaz time had started. So we were not allowed in. Pretty sad.
Once again we stuffed ourselves on to a cycle rickshaw, and headed towards Red Fort.
Once again we were back to clicking monuments. So I guess the street photography is going to happen next weekend : )
Suggestions welcome…
