Sometimes

Varanasi, India. 

Sometimes…you just have to be happy with what you have.
A two sided comment, referring to this venerable Sadhu,
sitting on the ghats of the Ganges, but also referring to myself.

This was one of those “On my God, I gotta get a picture of this guy”
moments. Even though I couldn’t “move” him, get him with a better background,
or position him in better light, I still had to get what I could get.
Note: for those that have never tried to move an older Sadhu
from his position of meditation, while surrounded by his “followers”
or students, well, good luck.

    You are so right. I had a few chances during my stay in Papua New Guinea that I bungled because I didn’t know the difference between an f-stop and a rock, and that was after three years of journalism school; shame on me. But I honestly don’t know why you would want to move him. The background is perfect and unobtrusive. Marvelous!
