Blue, Old Delhi, India

Men in the lane of the Old Delhi, Delhi (Jerome Lorieau)

I was on my way to Khari Baoli when I took this picture in the Old Town of Delhi. I was interested in the various blue tones and the two Indian men who I thought would be well placed to make this composition. India is a unique country for colour and texture, and hence a perfect playground for colour photography (a bit like the Morocco’s Medinas). To start with the Indian man in the “rickshaw” was not looking at me but at some point a noise in the street make him look towards me. He then stared at me in the way that only Indian men do, giving me the opportunity to take this photograph.
