Pink City : Doors and Windows (Part 2)

This is a continuation of the series of photographs Pink City : Doors and Windows (Part 1), an appreciation of some old doors and windows from the historic walled city of Jaipur, India, with each door or window seemingly narrating its own beautiful story. These photos are not for sale.

    This series is like oil paintings and some of the photos, e.g. no. 18 and 19 are my favorite as these are well balanced compositions with perfect colour scheme and amazing textures.
