Varanasi, India. 2010
This man was following one of the frequent processions through Varanasi where dead bodies are being carried to the place where they are burned to be thrown into the Ganges. I had my camera out and stood by myself watching the people passing by. The man stopped in front of my lens and gave me this look, then nodded a “thank you” when I took the picture, gave me a quick smile, and walked on. They appreciate having their picture taken in India.
