A Small Gallery of Pretty Pictures

Below are several close-ups of frescos from the Amber Fort in Jaipur and the Red Fort in Delhi, and one marble inlay at the City Palace in Jaipur.  No people, no scenery.  Just pretty pictures.

From the Red Fort, Delhi:

  1. Tx, C, for taking the time to post these. 🙂 I must dispute “pretty” in regard to the domed archway (doorway?) with the red motif. Those panels of flower-filled vases are stunning :). The details on the vases themselves, the details on the flowers… I say beautiful :). Thank you, and thank you, overall, for the travelogue! Been spending a nice chunk o’ time reading and looking @ photos. Glad you’re enjoying yourself!

    • SO glad to hear it! I think I meant “pretty” as an understatement–agree totally. I am hoping they are a bit of inspiration for Me’irah, too. Hard for my vocabulary to keep up with what we are seeing, frankly. The motifs of geometric patterns combined with stylized botanicals makes my eyes very happy.
