VARANASI (BENARIS) – We had a long day here, visiting the great Sarnath Stupa, a monument to Buddha marking the site where he delivered his first sermon. Then two trips on the Ganges, one in daylight and one after dark, with intermittent walking it between. This is the holiest of all Indian cities, for Hindus comparable to Jerusalem. I have many images so I’m posting a gallery for the day.
Day 3054 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
MAHESHWAR INDIA – Arrived at last. This begins my 2018 exploration of India. For the next few weeks, some days will actually be galleries because it hard to edit down to a few “best” images without more distance. This is the first day of the Indian Classical music festival at the Ahilya Fort. on the Narnada River and attending an Indian classical music festival. “Classical” music here doesn’t mean Brahms: it’s traditional music played on a sitar, tabla and so on.
Day 3048 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
