A Seeming Mermaid Steers

A Seeming Mermaid Steers.


“Her gentlewoman, like the Neriedes,
So many mermaids, tender her i’ the eyes
And made their bends adornings; at the helm
A seeming mermaid steers”.
(William Shakespeare – “Antony and Cleopatra”)

A few days ago this charming and pretty mermaid came to the shore of the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
It was almost before sunset, it was very hot earlier, I guess she was enjoying the evening breeze.
I was sitting nearby on the stairs of Munsi ghat, I took several shots, she saw me, it seemed that she didn’t mind but she vanished in the holy waters before I had the time to show her the pictures…
