Report: The Sacred Cities: Varanasi & Vrindavan Photo Expedition



Here's a brief first report just a few moments before meeting the group of photographers in the lobby of our hotel in Delhi. All participants have now arrived, and although jet-lagged and tired after their respective long haul flights, they seem very excited at the prospect of starting on The Sacred Cities Photo Expedition-Workshop.

I had a couple of hours of free time yesterday, and spent them at my favorite Delhi haunt: the dargah of Hazrat Nizzam Uddin, where there were quite a crowd coming on this Sunday to pay their respect to the Sufi saint and hear qawwal from two separate performing groups.

This afternoon, we will head to Old Delhi for a few hours of street photography...just to get ourselves in the "zone".
