CB&W: Of Walls From Another Era

Cee’s Black and White photo challenge is about Walls – Indoors and Outdoors and this time I am quite spoilt for choice. Nothing but walls in my kitty but fear not I won’t drive you up the wall with too extensive a selection 😀

RanaPThis is not actually from another era but recently built in honor of Maharana Pratap (9 May 1540 – January 1597) a popular Rajput King of Mewar or modern day Rajasthan in Udaipur.

There were so many wall carvings and sculptures that I am quite bedazzled and befuddled which to display and which to keep for anther day.


Screen Shot 2018-02-01 at 6.11.25 pmI end this series with a picture of the Bagore ki Haveli at Udaipur flicked from my son’s collection (psst plijj dont tell him!). Last year he had visited Udaipur which inspired us to visit it this year. But unfortunately despite active efforts due to various reasons we couldnt visit this particular fort. Much to our absent son’s delight 😀

Hope you liked! Thanks for visiting and look forward to your comments 🙂

PS. I had a tough time editing and posting pictures for this series. No matter where the photo is stored, it always opens in my browser and I find it difficult to edit there. Any suggestions on what settings to change for the open is set to Firefox (default) but earlier I could view and edit on my screen without any browser. It doesnt help if I turn off the internet either 😦 Any help, suggestions?
