I realized I have quite a lot of shots from Udaipur in Rajasthan that I haven’t shared with anyone, although a couple of blogs ago I showed you some night shots and other highlights. Here is a selection of other shots from one of India’s most scenically located cities. If you are heading to Udaipur, I recommend a stay at the Aashiya Haveli above Lake Pichola. No restaurant, although there are plenty nearby, but a rooftop terrace where breakfast is served. Very kind and friendly service, clean but basic rooms. Great value.

All shots were taken using the Fujifilm X-Pro1 with the 55-200 (equivalent to about 80 to 300 on a full-frame) zoom, and 14mm and 35mm Fujinon prime lenses. It was in Udaipur that I actually started feeling sorry for the guys with their heavy white Canon lenses and hefty DSLR bodies. The X-Pro1 is a mirrorless camera which produces unusually high quality pictures for a camera of that kind. I won’t bore you with all the technical details but it is now my camera of choice. Waiting for the XE-2 to become available and that will then be my ‘second’ camera.
