Photographer's Note

The Ganesha procession took place again in Paris this Sunday. Also called Ganepati, this is a very ancient and powerful god with a human body and an elephant head. He's one of the most important god mainly because he embodies "Wisdom" and he's considered as the one able to push away the hurdles when people are engaged in a project, a travel or aiming for a given target.

The elephant god car is driven by dozens of mens pulling very long ropes. Many people are gathering around his car to bring him a gift made of coconuts, bananas, green leaves and encens.

Just behind the main car, we could see a lot of singers and musicians. Most people around were in traditional clothes. This guy was part of the crowd and was among the people laughing around me. I asked him for a portrait.

Cropped, levels adjusted, USM applied.
