Ball graining lithography machine - Print shop (India)

The machine gives a surface grain to the offset printing plates by the impact of small steel balls or pebbles driving an abrasive against the plates.­

When I took the photo I was not sure exactly what this machine was, but it was moving making a lot of noise, and the metal balls that you see are moving over some printing plates.­ See a video of a similar machine in action.

I took this and those other photos in a small Print Shop /­ Book Editor in Delhi, called Jayyed Press.­

These are photos that i took in the streets of Delhi (India)

It gives an idea of the organized chaos in the bazaars of the old city.­

Those photos are only from Delhi.­ I have many more interesting photos from other parts of India.

Photos taken during a 7-week, 7000 Km motorcycle tour across parts of India (Delhi, Rajasthan, Ladakh, Kashmir, Jammu and more) in May-June 2009.­
