The Camel Mela in Pushkar, India, 2001

I recently re-discovered one of my favorite albums of all time: a trip in 2001 to Pushkar, India, for the annual Camel Fair. In those years, I was traveling with just one of the cheapest Nikon pocket-sized point-and-shoot film cameras one could find. Men with moustaches, earrings, and pink turbans; women in intricate gold-threaded saris and bangles up to their shoulders; camel butts with carefully shaved and died tribal designs–Rajasthan makes the rest of the world seem grey.
