Artist's Description

What: A section of the crowds at the Varanasi Ghats during the ritualistic aarti (worship ceremony)

Where: Varanasi, India

Camera Gear & other Trivia: Canon EOS 5D, 100-400L lens.

The ancient city of Varanasi is acknowledged as the oldest continuously inhabited city on the planet. With its ancient temples, picturesque river ghats and a way of life unchanged since millenia, Varanasi is the very soul of India’s Hindu faith. Innumerable people – of all hues of life – come to Varanasi every year, to partake of its spiritual treasurehouse; distinctions of class, creed and social standing come to naught in the melting pot that is Varanasi.

And to denote this “melting pot”, I made this image by zooming in on a section of the crowd, chose a slow shutter speed and made several shots while moving the camera.
