As a photographer, monks and sadhus have been my weakness and I firmly believe that they are among the most photogenic among us.
This Sadhu was sitting under a cave like structure near Chakratirtha with his eyes closed, looking so much at peace with himself. When I sat near him, he opened his eyes. I asked through gesture if I could take a photograph of him, he nodded in affirmative. So I took this photograph, nodded in thanks and left.
I did not see him the next day when I went there.
I think I have missed a lot of posts on Hampi journey but you know I use your site to refer when I plan a trip. Sorry for missing though and a lovely shot. There is something intriguing about the personality of monks and sadhus which every photographer wants to capture. Isn’t it?
🙂 Very true. They seem so much at peace with themselves. And thats why I love taking their photographs.
looks great and nice light 🙂
Thanks Joshi 🙂
I clicked the same pic… I think it was teh same guy… it was near the river isn’t it?
Yes the same Sadhu, who sits near Chakratirtha
