Indian Beast of Burden

Beast of Burden - Road to Mysore, India

Beast of Burden – Road to Mysore, India

Along with the truck full of people, these white cows pulling the farm carts interested me the most on the highway. I saw a number of these, which made sense since I was traveling through rural farmland.

While I had several opportunities to photograph them, most didn’t come out well. The speed of the car relative to the carts and the odd angles out the car window made it surprisingly and annoyingly difficult. I asked the driver to slow down but I don’t think he completely understood or his timing didn’t coincide well.

I finally got a relatively good shot, on the other side of the street. This one came out nice and sharp, but the next picture, which was better framed was unacceptably out of focus. Oh, well. I’ll take what I can get. I suppose with more practice, I’ll get better. But something tells me, it’s going to be a while until I’m back in India shooting cow carts on the highway.

Note: This is one of one hundred twenty-three photos in my book book of India featuring black and white street photographs and observations.
