Colours of Mysore, South India

Sripatnagar is a small rural village of narrow dusty alleyways filled with colourful clothes out to dry in the hazy heat. The vibrancy is eye-popping. Tiny homes are painted vivid pretty colours. All around, the beautiful deep-coloured skin of the South Indian community is adorned in bold bright colourful clothing, making both village and people an attractive sight.

The village is lined by temples, archaeological and heritage sites, lying within the ruin walls of Tipu Sultan’s former palace.

Strikingly, the people are THE warmest I’ve encountered. Not a single person turns from being photographed. They smile and giggle and pose, innocently. It is a heart- warming place!
