The banks of the Ganges in Varanasi have been photographed before. I must have seen colorful shots of folks bathing and performing rituals on the steps that lead down from the city a hundred times. I was curious what photographic opportunities would present themselves to me while I visited. I was feeling a certain amount of pressure to start making portraits as I hadn't really made that a priority over the past week. Not outside pressure, just within myself.
I opted not to take the Streetstudio this trip. A shock to some, I'm sure, but this is a survey trip. I didn't know what to expect. I am traveling with friends. And I wanted to keep it super light. As it i I only brought one pair of pants. With hindsight, I made the right decision. Logistically, it would have been a real hassle.
Take Pictures double fisted.
