Villages and Relics in Vishnu's Land....A Portrait of INDIA (part 2): The South (2)

The second part of my India series continues were part one left off (view here). The photographs in this thread were all taken in the state of Karnataka. As I mentioned in my first thread, my father’s business is importing handmade paper from his factory in Hubli, Karnataka, which I was there to photograph. I have included a few (but not too many) from the factory in here, although I’m not too sure paper-making is of too much interest to people on here!

Other than that I visited a few great places in Karnataka including more nice, classic south Indian village. One great place I went is a UNESCO site called Hampi. Hampi is basically a ruined ancient city with a kind of Pompeii feel to it. It was amazing, and it was surprisingly empty.

Anyway, enjoy!

Damn, I wish I could have made it to India when I lived in China. Its so amazing, Asia in general and so very different from the west. I loved going to small towns in China with my camera and having everyone do the same thing they seem to be doing in these photos; smiling and then little kids follow you around. Great photos man, really captured the heart of Indian culture.

Certainly more tranquil than your first thread but just as colorful. The old temple among the rocks is cool.

Tranquil compared to Mumbai I guess, but don't let it fool you....India is never tranquil! There is always some kind of chaotic activity going on.

Wonderful photothread, fascinating to see. Now, is it just me, but I hadn't realized how many Indians have that broad, rounded, and large square jaw, facial structure. Is this a more common characteristic of the people of the south and perhaps not so much in other regions? Or is it simply because of all the faces you can see in these threads and I am noticing that characteristic is a common one in general for the first time?

I don't even begin to know how to answer that question. I would say that people in the north do look different. In the north people tend to be larger and broader shouldered, and lighter skinned. In terms of facial structure I don't know, I am no ethnographer....I'm sure there are differences though.
