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

Along the Ganges River, Varanasi

February 8, 2013  -  Cities, Towns & Villages

Another great day it was today in India. Though I have been to Varanasi numerous times I love it every time I am here. The traffic is another story altogether but by the ghats it’s absolutely divine if you pick the quiet spots. For the less quiet areas you’ll be asked if you want to hire a boat or a priest about a hundred times before you are even able to finish your chai. That said I had a lovely day taking photos from dusk to dawn. Yes, not dawn to dusk.

I hope you enjoy them.
