Walking By The Yamuna

Morning Walk By The River

I had promised all of you that I would slowly start to put up pictures of Allahabad and Benares. This one is a bit stylised, but I thought it fits.

Fakirs walking by the sacred rivers of India have been a phenomenon we have witnessed for centuries. They shall endure as long as the rivers endure. And the rivers shall endure as long as we treat them well.

The picture was taken at the shores of the Yamuna in Allahabad, close to where the Yamuna meets the Ganga at the holy Sangam

    1. Thank you. I have three versions of the fakir. One is the straight colour one, that i like. One is a black & white pinhole camera simulation, and this. I used a high key effect. I thought it accentuated the fakir, and yet gave it a dreamy effect. Thanks again.

  1. Such pics are timeless! You look at them and you cannot tell which era it belongs to! Like you said “Fakirs walking by the sacred rivers of India have been a phenomenon we have witnessed for centuries. They shall endure as long as the rivers endure. And the rivers shall endure as long as we treat them well.” Loved it Rajiv!
