Photographer's Note

Stop me if youíve seen this one before.

This holy man greets the many Pilgrims who make their way up to the hilltop Savitri temple which overlooks Pushkar town. Iíve already posted a head and shoulders portrait of him but this one shows a bit more context Ė I like all the religious paraphernalia which surround him and allows him to perform simple pujas for worshippers. There is a plate with a few coins on it and I added to this before heading back to the lakeside for some breakfast. A good start to the day.

Personally I think this looks better in black and white but Iíve posted the colour version to provide maximum contrast to the earlier shot.
