Capturing Scenes from Jammu and Kashmir Part 1

May 29, 2012

I’ve just returned from a family holiday to Jammu and Kashmir which lasted a fortnight. I’ve always wanted to visit since I can remember. I’m not oblivious to the fact that I’ve been feeling left out – like I’d missed an experience of a lifetime – whenever I’d see photos of my parents and older brother posing for the camera in kashmiri dress. They visited before I was born, so no one is at fault, but the feeling of having missed an important milestone in our family still lingered. As it turned out, my mother’s side of the family planned a trip to Jammu and Kashmir for all of us. So the dates of May 17 to May 27 were set aside and plans were made. With my aunts, my uncles, my cousins, my grandmother, and even my little nephew, we were a band of 18…and boy was it an experience alright!

I’ve put together some of my favorite shots taken in Katra and Pahalgam during the first half of my trip. Have a look!
