Photographer's Note

Photographers are not welcome at the " Burning Ghats " on the Ganges in Varanasi. Personally I try to respect the rules of refraining to take pictures around this sacred place. But sometimes, the subject is so special, that I an ashamed to admit that I made a couple of exceptions such as this picture where the family on the boat is spreading the ashes of their loved one, on the Ganges river, accompanied by small floating candles. It was almost dark, therefore I used a 400 ISO film which explains the grainy look.
