“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”
(Henry Van Dyke – American Writer, Poet and Essayist, 1852-1933)

A young lady was standing along the holy waters of the Ganges at Dasaswamedh Ghat, in Varanasi (Benaras).
She was keeping the golden watch of her father while he was worshiping in the river.
It was after sunrise and the light was already bright.
I took several portraits of her but I thought that her hands holding that watch was showing more about who she was, I could feel all the tenderness and respect she had for the most important man of her young life.
I showed her those pictures and she smiled at me with modesty.
My camera allowed me to freeze this moment in time as if it was possible to stop time running…
