Puppy, Jodhpur

Jodhpur puppy

A brown puppy sits in stark contrast against the indigo blue house.  Jodhpur is famed not only for the trousers but also its blue houses, sometimes also called Brahmin houses because they are traditionally inhabited only by members of that caste.  The general view is that the blue wash was originally applied to help protect the houses against termites and other insects.  Rajasthan, India.
