A sadhu passing through the passage of time........

By sawsengee  
A sideview capture of a passing by hindu sadhu at the prayer ghats of Varanasi (Benares).....He was seen hurrying towards the River Ganges with a stern, far-away look and mumbling in his lips. In that disposition, I dared not ask him for a photo shoot but I followed him until he slowed down for this candid photo frame capture with a longer focal length of 250mm.
THANK YOU everyone for the UAs, votes and pleasant comments......very much appreciated. ee GrinGrinGrin

Great profile image Sawsengee
So interesting to see your images Samsengee! They make me aware of how much has been lost through globalization and how much I would still like to learn about and experience other cultures. Your portraits or as in this case candids bring back memories and dreams..

Just as well not to interrupt a holy man on his way to prayers - or any old person mumbling to himself. Super candid.
