  1. Beautiful photos Ramu but try and keep photos per post to four or five. For a large collection Flickr is best. If you visit you shall figure out the mechanics. They store photos in full resolution there and you can organise them in folders and you can let others use them while giving you credit. They show up in search engines and that is a plce many photographers use.. Blogger and facebook reduce resolution massively.

  14. I really like the pictures here, you have captured them well. I have been to this place few times and I wonder the price is 'reasonable' :) It is also a place where one can experience how indians discriminate between domestic and foreign (tourists) customers!

  23. Lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing. Dilli Haat is a must do if you are on a vacation in the capital. Under the open sky, numerous little kiosks sell jewellery, paintings, fabrics, saris, pottery, furniture, and of course food from across the country. Check out Dilli Haat timings, entry fee and many more.
