In 2007 I spent a few weeks travelling, armed with my camera, on holiday in India. I travelled alone, and interestingly my favourite photographs from the trip are virtually all portraits. I found the people very friendly and had the time to stop and interact with street-sellers, school children and taxi drivers. I had my photo taken many times by random strangers at the Gateway to India, who were curious to meet a white woman travelling alone. I in turn took portraits of the people I met and interacted with during my journey there.
