Shooting in Varanasi with the X-Pro1
Feb 16, 2014

Dear All,

Here are some shots I recently took in Varanasi (Utar Pradesh, India) with my X-Pro1 & Touit 32mm.

The city is absolutely incredible, it seems to be in an other time dimension. To give you an idea of the local mood the fires in the pictures are those of the Burning Ghats (used for the open air cremation of dead bodies), and the nice guy with the skull is an Aghori Kapalik Baba: The Aghoris are members of an Hindu sect known to eat pieces of human bodies found in the Ganga River...

Many more pics are available on my 500px page (http://500px.com/Sebastien_Bey_Haut/sets)

Regards,

Seb

Really excellent shots. Unfortunately, that Zeiss bokeh, particularly in the shot of the guy with the skull, is not my favorite (otherwise it's a great shot).

there is nothing more for me to add as it has all been said already.  I really really really want to go there. I'm sure my new XE2 kit would love the journey.
