so, to take a breather from the last post, let’s just look at some sadhu portraits. the first guy was typical of the many mendicant sadhus at the kumbh mela in that he was willing to pose, but only for money; the next one was simply grooming after his bath, and ignored me. clearly, he’d been busy, but he wasn’t there to beg, either. the next two are baba nagas (including one who is out of “costume”). next: tent life
as i said, people like to have their pictures taken. well, most people. i took these photos at a local festival for the goddess mariamman, the mother goddess. more on this shortly.

we had many opportunities to take portraits (and grab shots at the market).
