In the bazaars of Hyderabad

This is the Ramzan month, and hence, the best time to take a walk through the quaint alleys around Charminar. Bangles, lehengas, shararas, pearls, yards and yards of beautiful fabric of all kinds, lace, zari, mehendi, saris, dry fruits, spices, ethnic footwear...there's nothing you can't get there!

I went there a couple of days ago with a friend who also loves taking photographs. We shopped and took pictures all evening :)

    I like the way you get the colours! Is it your camera, or you REALLY are a good photographer? ;)
