On the Steps

On the Steps


A scene on the steps that lead down to Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India, taken in October 2015.

I was wondering what it was that drew me to this picture, and now I know! It’s the pyramidal composition plus the two men in white shirts in the background at right and left that provide stop points for the X diagonals! So no you know what goes on in my head!… geometry!
