Indian Inspiration

 I have 4 huge canvas waiting to be painted on. So I was looking for inspiration..I like to paint them on Indian themes...Looking for inspiration online I found some extremely beautiful  photographs of Incredible India.I want to share some of them with you which I have short listed..




Steve McCurry does not need any introduction.. His photographs for National geographic magazine depict the life, hardships and happiness of common people in the most beautiful photographs ever taken. He makes the most common and ordinary faces look absolutely gorguoes.. He is able to catch through his camera the moment, that look, the natural glow of the face like no one else does!!! This picture is of women singing and praying, battered by sand and dust, Dust storm in Rajasthan, India. 


This is from Steve Mccurry for National geographic taken at Dal Lake in the Vale of Kashmir,India .  The beautiful sunset and the shimmering waters of the lake makes this picture so serene, magnificent and magical. 


A flower seller paddles through Dal Lake's quiet waters .. beautifully captured by Steve Mccurry in Kashmir, India.


Organic tea gardens in India's Darjiling region.. The Camellia sinensis leaves are plucked by hand.. This beautiful picture is captured by Bob Sacha.



I am really spoiled of choices!! Which one did you like the most?
