On my first visit to an Australian Rules Football game in Sydney, I was surrounded by opposing fans.
I looked at the birds resting on the tree and smiled. That was the moment I decided to only do what I love to do. And I love to travel.
While we’re not all just thirsty for Insta and Facebook Likes, everyone still wants amazing travel photos to remember their trip and show their mates – to wow them, inspire them, and maybe make them more than a teensy bit jealous.
Presenting a photographic love letter to the world’s most colourful and chaotic city.
Imagine for a moment that it’s 1969: Hendrix is shredding Star Spangled Banner at Woodstock; war rages in Vietnam; a counter-cultural revolution is taking place in the western world, and you’re part of it.
Meet the Bartholomews, aka You Can’t be Serious.
India’s a pretty amazing place, and like we always say: when life gives you lessons, make lessonade.
In June, I was lucky enough to travel through India with travel photographer and Instagram juggernaut Lauren Bath (@laurenepbath). It was a beyond-brilliant experience, a the perfect way to see a country renowned for providing photographers with limitless subjects to capture. For those who haven’t been to India yet, there are the expected clichés: contrasts, colour, curries, chaos and cows. But there’s also much to photograph beyond people chucking coloured powder at Holi Festival (although that’s a pretty awesome sight too).
India seems to be one of those travel destinations that people want to go to, but don’t because they fixate on all the things that could go wrong.
It don’t matter if shuffling the streets of Mumbai or being horizontal on the beaches of Kerala is your thing, India will deliver something that’s totally you, even if ‘what’s you’ is lurching between street vendors and cramming panipuri in your mouth like an automaton.
