India - Karnataka Images from Karnataka State of India

Welcome to Karnataka-India Image archives of Kalpana. Images are organised into groups of thumbnails of images. Click on any thumbnail in a group to open the page with bigger images of that group of pictures.

I have visited Karnataka for work many times. Often there was no time to go and see the usual tourist places. However, occasionally even tourist visits are possible, especially to smaller and lesser known places. On the other hand, work-related visits, usually give me an opportunity to interact with persons in villages and take pictures of their daily lives. I love taking pictures of persons, though obviously for each person, his/her own life is always special.
