Caught! & the Unseen Rajasthan Award



The above photo, captured in the Marion County Historical Museum at the Fort King Festival, is presented in concert with the award below which is given, in part, for showing things "which are lesser known."

Nikon D300, f/4.5, 1/30 sec, ISO 1800.

We want to express our thanks to Bharat (Unseen Rajasthan) at Jaipur City Daily Photo for awarding us this beautiful award.



The Unseen Rajasthan award is given to a blogger who really shows off the beauty of his/her city - the things which are lesser known.

It's a very good thing we cannot see the face. ;-)

Frank said...

Congratulations. Well deserved, Jacob.

This photo is too funny and is so indicative of how seriously folks (don't) take historic sites and artifacts. (Like carving into Spanish cannon at the fort in Saint Augustine or taking stones from Olumpia, Greece.)

Your post about Fort King was excellent. You nailed the history and your photos really show us what it looks like today. I must visit.

Love this shot !!! Candids like this are hilarious..... People are just sometime oblivious to things around them. This is my favorite type of photography...... candids. It can be happy or sad and it almost always tells a story. I think thats what I like about it so much.

Great shot Jacob. It reminds me on one I took a while back with people swimming in a lake right behind a "no swimming" sign.

Too funny! C'mon, she is not leaning on it. She is gently caressing the antique glass case with her elbows. (:
