Sharing my experiences of this beautiful world that we live in through photography. And some geeky tech photo stuff.

Father and Son Journey the Kumbh Mela

February 28, 2013  -  Festivals

10th February 2013
Main bathing day, Kumbh Mela Festival
Allahabad, India.

Meshed amongst millions of people and really not in a position to photograph at all I decided to look at what was happening around me. People everywhere. Right up against me. Pushing and pulling in every direction. And it has been like this for 2 hours now. So, I held my camera in front of me and started shooting as I was pushed around. To be honest almost every image was useless except for this series which showed the patience and love of a father who carried his son, for hours probably, in this sea of devoted pilgrims.
