here's another "reappearance" (i never really went away!)

but now i'm here to ask why you're shooting (or is just uploading) predominantly in b&w. a slight change in philosophy, perhaps? ;-)

Superb shots, both of them.

(I'm also fairly sure a variation on the first photograph - in probably the same location - is there somewhere in our family album...)

Oh, and B&W is simply rocking, as far as Banaras is concerned. More please!!!

bidi-k: thanks so much for the comment and commendation.

tr: no, no change in philosophy - it's just been the last few posts, I'll revert to colour soon enough. (Though I liked shooting Benares in B&W because it helped sift through a lot of unnecessary noise in the frames as well).

km: yes, added one now and some more later.

Can't get over the 2nd photo.

Perfectly balanced, beautifully captured.
