Flower Man.

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Have you been to India? One of my biggest dreams is to take a trip there. Besides getting utterly lost in its culture, I want to visit the spectacular Malik Ghat flower market in Calcutta. Balazs’ friend, who had been there, said it’s a magnificent sight to see.

Anyway, my all-things-India-travel-lust got even stronger after I spotted this series by a Danish photographer, Ken Hermann. When he saw all those flower vendors in front of the Hooghly River selling garlands of marigolds, enormous bunches of mango leaves and handfuls of jasmine and sunflowers, he was so inspired that he created a series of photographs about them. Aren’t they striking?

P.S: Heavy load, and another stunning flower market in India.
P.P.S: Plus, those family portraits with a twist and this is a must!

I'd love to travel to India! I have a friend who grew up there and would love to travel around with him. I've never heard of that flower market. It sounds wonderful! I absolutely love the photo with all the marigolds. So golden and sunny! :) xo, Katie

Ever since I watched Eat, Pray, Love, I've wanted to go to India. It sounds truly amazing... the diverse cultures and delicious foods pulled me in... and now this flower man. This sounds divine! I think India is going to be my #2 destination (following Greece as my first). =)
