India

This was taken in 2006 on my world travels. I spent a month traveling throughout India and this photo was taken at Karnimata in Deshnok, Rajasthan. Karnimata is a hindu temple that worships rats (as you can see all the little rats feeding in the background, and some dead ones too) – it was one of the most fascinating places I visited in all my travels and was a real eye opener. This boy came up to me in the temple and stared at me for ages. I think he was fascinated with my cameras. I had my mamiya 6 medium format film camera with me and my digital SLR – he could not understand how he could see himself in the back of one camera and not the other. He was a sweet kid, I have lots of photos of him =)
