Vadodara Grinding Grain

Last night I went out with Jai to buy some clothes for the wedding. On the way there we stopped to get some grain ground up. People will buy their grain whole, then take it to this guy who grinds it up custom for them. Labour is very cheap in India so this kind of service is everywhere.

This image was shot on the Fujifilm X100T. I didn’t use this camera much when i was in New Zealand. I found in New Zealand that the Sony with the wide lens was better for the many landscapes that are unavoidable there. Here in India I will still use the wide shot, but I find the 35mm lens of the Fujifilm better for framing the street style photography that is just so easy to do here.

Yes I’m now in India. This is the first image posted to Pixelbip form India. Looking forward to posting a whole lot more. The next couple days are preparation for the wedding so expect some amazing colours later in the week.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
