Imagine setting yourself up just on the bank of the river in Varanasi, just before dawn. Everything interesting is just about to happen, since the tourists are nowhere to be seen. You wait and the first devoted pilgrims come down the steps to bath, farm animals drift by in the streets, shaking off sleep, as a long boat slips silently through the blue hours of dawn sending sprays of scarlet fire in lines of petrol off the back of their sterns.
Or imagine walking into the camel fair for the first time and coming face to face with the teeming mass of people that have brought hordes of animals into the tiny city of Pushkar. You’ll walk lines of booths selling spices and textiles, camel and horse wear, food, endless drink as the desert bred cowboys race up and down the main thoroughfare just beside you showing off their horse mastery.
Wherever you go in India, it will be the photographic experience of a lifetime.
