Photos of India from the Pettitts Archive

David Pettitt

It will come as little surprise that over the last 25 years we have taken many photos during our travels around the world. We have accumulated quite a collection and this blog focuses on some of our favourites from India. Taken during our most recent visit to the country, these photographs highlight India’s great diversity and colour, from a humble shop assistant and busy rush hour station to famous architectural masterpieces and contemplative religious sanctuaries.
