Snapshots from India

These pictures were taken in New Delhi, India in the Fall of 1994 with a little Olympus point and shoot. They aren't great but they'll give you a glimpse into some of the many wonders of India.Taking these photos in India is what actually got me interested in photography.


Humayun's Tomb

The Gardens are quite beautiful and definitely worth a visit!

Noida

This is a street scene from Noida, a small town outside of New Delhi. You can see some advertising from our fine friends at Pepsi, choice of a third world generation! These Pepsi signs were about as close as I got to the actual soda. The local cola in India is Campa Cola which appears to be a knock-off of Coke in looks but not in taste. I drank my share of Campa Cola because it's just about the only thing you can find.
