“The greatest danger, that of losing one’s own self, may pass off quietly as if it were nothing; every other loss, that of an arm, a leg, five dollars, a wife, etc., is sure to be noticed.”
( Soren Kierkegaard – Danish Philosopher and Theologian, 1813-1855)

This picture was shot last evening at Nepali ghat in Varanasi (Benaras) in front of a small Vishnu temple where a few priests come before sunset in order to perform a water-pouring ritual.
The angle and perspective I have there allows my camera to attempt to capture the glimpse of what I call the human soul…
