  1. Brilliant shot, Joshi. He looks like he is pondering something, so absorbed in his thoughts he didn’t notice you. Love the BW composition, dark at the top and lighter above to bring the focus to his face :)

  2. Joshi, I like the ambiance , composition and tone of your shot, I love the hint of the tree of life, silhouetted against the oof light so much, the symbolism thereby heightened.

  3. The Sahus during the Kumbh Mela are so fascinating to see. Of course, as usual, your photography is so well composed and well connected to your subject. Thank you, Joshi, for your fabulous captures.

  4. Another very strong portrait by you, Joshi. The use of black and white is perfect for this elderly Sadhu. And I love how you use the back light to enhance his dreads and the expressive face.

  5. I absolutely adore this, and you tbh. Because you’ve inspired me and I thank you for that. Take care of your blessed talents. They are so precious, and so are you.
