Photos of India: Darjeeling, Taj Mahal, Kangchendzonga, Mt. Everest, Agra - Daniel Peckham

India Highlights

Highlights from my recent 2-week photojournalism trip to India. You may also be interested in my high-res Taj Mahal panorama, and a similar panorama of Kangchendzonga, the third-tallest mountain in the world. Our travel blog has more about this trip.

All photo comments for this album

Jordan: This is the side of the Taj Mahal where the kids in Slumdog Millionaire lived for a period of time...

Joe: Also helps settle the stomach and aids in digestion, I've heard.

Jordan: its amazing!!! And yes Joe you're right

Mom Peckham: so cute

Mom Peckham: Good ol' squatty potty. Flushing should help with the smell, at least. :)

Jess: Gee Daniel, what were you about to invade their territory? I think they are giving you the "look"

Daniel: These kids were used to photo-happy tourists, so they had specific poses rehearsed. And of course they asked for money afterward.

Katie: they are totally giving him the "look"

Jess: wow you got an Indian to smile for a picture, that is a feat. :)

Daniel: Yes, I was really surprised when this guy not only smiled for me, but asked me to come take some photos of his son, too. It was interesting to me that in general the people didn't smile much for photos.

Jess: She has one child (see the toe ring)

Katie: guess i better not wear mine anymore... ;)

Jess: I love this picture. Awesome job.

Daniel: Thanks. It kind of happened by accident, actually. But then I realized I really liked it, and went with it.

Joe: Nice! I love those "Autos" (Auto-Rickshaw)

Jess: Except on bumpy road when you are sitting on the metal bar.

Joe: Awesome.

Jess: WOW

Joe: I would LOVE to ride up on the roof of that! Like in Veer-Zaara... Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Jess: I do!

Jess: The black dot is to distract the "evil eye" and any time anyone says anything good about the baby (like they are SO cute) then that goes into the black dot and the evil eye can't use it against them later. Something along those lines.

Lem: I love the bucket on the side. When I was in Ethiopia, one of our travelmates wouldn't have any of the bucket when the shower didn't work. We had to find her a room with a working shower. :)

Jess: In India, even if the shower works most people still use a bucket. I lived with a wealthy family and they used buckets in their nice tile/marble showers.

Lem: Amazing set of photos, Daniel! This one is easily one of your best shots, I think. :)

Daniel: Thanks, Lem. I agree - this is one of my favorites for sure.

Joe: You are soooooo Lucky!

Joe: Oh wow! Love this one!

Joe: Lucky!

Joe: And a normal Rickshaw...

Joe: Wow!

Joe: Another huge load on the heads.

Joe: Love these two shots...

Joe: No cars? =)

Joe: I love these portraits! Especially this one!

Joe: See my earlier comment about carrying stuff on heads. =)

Joe: Awesome shot!

Joe: I love this shot!

Joe: Love it. =) Not too bad, but it's got nothing on Coke.

Joe: Women in India carry so much on their heads, more weight than some men in America can carry at all! =)

Joe: Probably a brother and Sister on the way to school. I love it!

Daniel: I think they're just as curious of me & my camera as I am of them.
