6. Getting a Portrait by Jaipur’s Time Travelling Photographer
Several years ago I read about Tikam Chand, a photographer with a 1860s wooden box camera who sets up a simple photo studio daily on the sidewalk in Jaipur’s Old City. The studio location just down the road from Jaipur’s honeycomb Hawa Mahal hasn’t changed since his father and his grandfather were the ones behind the camera. Tikam Chand has been here for the past 18 years.
The box camera has an inbuilt darkroom and the first step is producing a negative, which is rinsed with chemicals and then given a water bath.
The end result is the perfect keepsake. A stunning portrait that looks as old as the camera itself. If you’re in Jaipur, I couldn’t recommend it more.

The Elephant Festival takes over the city of Jaipur every year. The animals are draped with jewellery and given majestic multicolour makeovers (complete with pedicures), before doing a procession through the streets. Later they race, play elephant polo and take part in a human v animal tug-of-war.

10. Secrets of the Brooklyn Basement Domino League
Left, Ken Griffith – ‘Guru’ as most people call him… Two and a half decades after moving his family to New York, Guru converted the basement at one of his two Brownsville, Brooklyn homes into Club Strauss Street, one of eight basement ‘arenas’ where the delicious victories and bitter pains of the domino season unfold.
For hundreds of Caribbean-American New Yorkers, a subterranean domino league offers a relaxed reminder of home. But when things get serious, they get really serious.
“Goodnight” is their greeting when they enter the basement clubs. Kiss cheeks. Pass Coronas. If they’re not just West Indian but also from Barbados then they might exclaim “Cheese on bread!” — the Bajan expression of surprise at seeing a friend who’s been away too long.

While on holidays in Rhode Island, drone enthusiast Kevin Miller was taking footage of a 200-feet-tall wind turbine when it captured something unexpected: a man sunbathing at the top!
‘Upon landing he saw me bring the drone down and was leaning over the edge’, Miller said. ‘I looked up and wave to him and he waved back’.
