I caught this candid shot of this holy man and gave him 10 Rupee's which is a small amount of money. What touched me was that he took the charity, stood up and gave the 10 rupee's to his blind friend in the belief that he needed it more. ✖️ shot taken in Jaisalmer, India. India

The Human Condition I want to travel across the world and breathe In the air of new places." I took this shot in the Thar Desert, just outside Jaisalmer. We had been traveling by camel since the morning and had just stopped for lunch under a large Acacia tree. His fingers are covered in fresh dough which was used to make naan bread on the fire. India
The Human Condition The most memorable moment of my trip was in Varanasi. @wearethewildyouth and I were on a mission to check out the infamous Burning ghats where bodies are burnt in open fire pits all day and night. Whilst we were watching skulls in the flames and bodies turn to ash, A rolling mist swept across the Ganges and took over the banks. I took this photo that night of what looks to be the grim reapers of Varanasi. India
The Human Condition Myself and @wearethewildyouth were lucky enough to experience Ganga Aarti in Varanasi. A large number of people gather on the banks of river Ganges to sing its praises. The priests hold large fire bowls in their hands and perform rituals with fire bowls, the gongs in the temples at the Ghat start ringing and the chants fill the air. People float earthen Diyas, with burning flickers and flowers in them as a symbol of hope and wishes .The golden hues of floral diyas reflected in the river Ganges present a spectacular view.

Everyday Joy So in an attempt to help adoption of dogs in The SPCA unit for abandoned animals I took some portrait shots of the dogs, some of them interacting with volunteers. Online platforms like Facebook help get these animals adopted and an honest picture that captures the dogs character can do a lot. Since these dogs are in pens for most of the day, they get really excited to be scratched, taken for walks and interacted with. This is Ashleigh and she runs 'We are Animals' an organization that gets local students to the shelters . She's a regular at the SPCA, and it's more than clear that she takes a lot of Joy in helping out a paw in Need . Capetown

Entry to the Depth Of Field EyeEm Mission. I took this shot from the Balcony of an old Haveli in Jaisalmer. The haveli was built like a Lego house. Each block linking together on all 6 sides. The focus of this shot is on the stone Lotus sculptures. Even these have lightbulb like fittings which screw and lock into place on the decorated pillars. Very impressive for an 18th century stone mason. pPopular PhotosIIndiaEEyeEm Best ShotsvVscocamVVSCO CamvVscogood

Rishikesh is a pretty misty city at the Moment. A constant drizzle of sorts that turns into rain momentarily only to return to it's whispy state. I was exploring the city on foot after checking in to our guest house and it decide to rain. I ducked into the closest shelter I could find and luckily it was a Chai store ( tea shop ). After conversing with some of the locals and buying one or two a cup myself, I continued. It started raining again and just before I found shelter for the second time I came across this Holy Man, who was very contently sitting under his umbrella and smoking his pipe.

My Best Photo 2014 Very rarely does a composition like this come along. I took this photo just outside the Sun Temple en route to Galta "Monkey Palace" in Jaipur which boasts various shrines, dedicated to Krishna, Rama and Hanuman. The light was perfect, holy man in place and as if I could plan it any better, this little monkey leap into the air with great agility all the whilst his fingers gently plucking a piece of coconut from the holy man's palm. I'm proud of this photo, and it's photos like these that have me realize that I'm improving my skill of capturing this incredible world around us, you can see for yourselves by comparing my first posts. But alas I still have so much to learn and am yet to develop a photographic style. Thanks for following my progress and welcome to all my new followers! pPost The PeopleEEyeEm Best ShotsTThe EyeEm Facebook Cover ChallengeIIndiapPopular PhotosEEyeEm Nature Lover
