Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Anirudha Chakraborty

I was visiting the Kamakhya Temple in Guwahati in the state of Assam, India. Behind the temple, I came across this priest blessing the pigeons in the temple pond. I was taken by the contrast of the pigeons against the red robe of the priest and reddish water.

Location: Kamakhya Temple, Guwahati, Assam, India
