At the Kumbh Mela there were many Naga Sadhus (Holy Men). They were all covered in ash and some were completely naked (I won't be uploading any of those shots!!).
As we passed by this tent there were a crowd of Nagas sitting in a circle smoking marijuana. We stopped to say hello and they were all waving us forward inviting us to sit amongst them and partake. We thanked them but didn't take them up on their kind offer!
This was the most fully and decoratively dressed Naga, and I think he may have been in a position of authority judging by the way he seemed to be directing the proceedings.
I've uploaded a series of shots I took of this guy that I like and I'd appreciate any opinions of which image, in terms of composition, is the best one.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like this series.
