B4 Retouch Holy Men Pashupatinath

Sadhus  in the Pashupatinath temple.
Sadhus, according to Micheal Palin the world’s most sociable hermits.
“These sadhus will do anything for you, including their Roy Wood and Wizzard impersonation”.
(Himalaya, Michael Palin)

The B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series.
That series caught on a bit more than I thought.
All of them are not retouched yet.
Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

    There are aborigines all over the world, not just Downunder. And they are most of them pretty wise ! 🙂

      It is in a way, but it felt strange and new to see them men, sitting there and being cheerful in a certain way to us. I added a link with more info about them. Tough lives by own choice.

          They are social hermits, but it was quite confronting seeing them. And see Micheal Palin meet them in his Himalaya program later was funny.
