pushkar camel fair……..

4:07 am

Held each November at the time of the Kartik Purnima full moon is the Pushkar Camel Fair!!!
It is one of India’s most highly rated festivals…….a spectacle on an epic scale, attracting 300,000 people and not to mention 20,000 camels, horses and cattle.

What an amazing once in a life time experience, to see all this colour and a carnival of tradition.
Pushkar is in Rajasthan……I would love to go, what a photographers dream!!! and would mind bringing a suitcase full of camel decorations back too…..how amazing.

another beautiful sunny morning, spent at my local market in ST ANDREWS….picking up my¬†
weekly supply of organic vegies and some of my favourite Thai food…yum!! This market never
disappoint’s me, it always surprises me……..and I always leave feeling grateful for the beautiful place I live and all it’s amazingly talented and crafty people which make up the community.

camping….

10:30 pm

after just having a week away camping with the family……I am on the hunt for a new tent!! I would love to get a teepee but its not really practical to pack up and carry 20ft long poles on the top of your car??? There is a fine line with tents, as you need something that does the job and is easy to put up and take down and is great in all weather conditions, otherwise your holiday could turn ugly.
As much as I would love to have my tent looking like these images above, it’s kinda not at all going to happen…. I have been checking out a UK company called Bell tents, which is image 5,6,7 and 15….they seem great…..anyone ever set up one of these before??
