I was talking to a man taking pictures of the passerbys with his gigantic large format camera when I looked up and saw a huge hot-air balloon floating over the city. I managed to find the only company allowed to maneuver these balloons in India. And one early morning a few days later, I lifted from the ground and hovered above the wakening city.
In a country steeped by religious belief, the origin of colors are often based in mythology. Blue is the color of Lord Krishna, one of the most worshipped gods in India. Because of that, many houses are painted blue.
