Monday Mellow Yellows - A Jaipur Lady - January 7, 2013


I am so glad to see that Gemma Wiseman is continuing the cheerful yellow theme on
Mondays!  Though I am 7000 miles away from my beloved India, I still have many
photos from there - to tug at my heart until I can return, hopefully by mid-May.
This lady I caught from my auto rickshaw as she crossed the street near me.




I am participating in Monday Mellow Yellows -
add your spot of yellow photo to join in the fun!

    1. I lived in India a total of nine months out of the last year. I never ceased to be amazed by the beautiful saris.

    1. The saris of India are so beautiful...I didn't buy one, though...wrapping them seemed impossible to me.

    1. I have dozens of pictures of beautiful saris...even living nine months in India last year, I was forever mesmerized by their color and the varieties, some jeweled and mirrored.

    1. That's just how I felt my nine months of living in Mumbai & Jaipur. The brilliance and color of the saris was amazing.

  7. What I like about yellow, is the fact, that it can never be a dark colour.

    Please have a good Tuesday.

    1. You're right, Kim...a gathering of women is phenomenal...especially if it's a festival or special occasion & they are in their best saris.
