That’s a volcano.
I’ve recently updated my website with two new portfolios based on my recent trip to the Maha Kumbh Mela.
Please feel free to take a look if you can spare the time.
Both projects can be found here.
I’m going to India again this weekend for two weeks. Old Delhi, Khajuraho, and then Allahabad to the Kumbha Mela – the worlds biggest festival and largest gathering of humanity on the planet at one time. 110 million over the whole festival and 40 million on one particular day. Apparently.
I’m still not sure what to expect there but from what I’ve seen so far it seems incredibly organised and well worth the trip.
Everyone that has been to Phnom Penh or elsewhere in Cambodia has photographed the monks, and most have done a far better job than me. There were times when I felt embarrassed at the sight of (mostly middle-aged Western men with huge telephoto lenses and bags full of gear) tourists stalking and chasing the monks just to get a photo. For that reason I tried to avoid being drawn to them as a subject, but occasionally I saw something that made me react. This was one of them.
