Adventures in India, Part 30 -- Sunrise On the Ganges, Part 3 Bathers

For many Hindus bathing in the Ganges is a religious act. The morning we were there thousands of people gathered along the banks of the river to cleanse their bodies, and presumably their spirits.

Prayer before entering the water.

Lamps on the water.

Doing the laundry in the river.

Bringing laundry to the river.

Net fishing in the river.

Drying laundry.

The interesting thing here is that everyone in the shot is averting their eyes to avoid seeing this guy, who seems to be enjoying himself thoroughly.
