“The Chinese have a theory that you pass through boredom into fascination and I think it’s true.
I would never choose a subject for what it means to me or what I think about it.
You’ve just got to choose a subject – and what you feel about it, what it means, begins to unfold if you just plain choose a subject and do it enough.”
(Diane Arbus – American photographer and writer, 1923–1971)

This picture was shot at Assi ghat along the Ganges in Varanasi (Benaras).
It was during the morning when things were quiet in a state of sluggishness.
I was straining the lense for the faintest stir when thinking in black and white allowed to pass through boredom into fascination…
