Early Morning, Assi Ghat


Outside our hotel on Assi Ghat sat a number of vendors selling a variety of items for pilgrims: flowers, pamphlets on the city, and plastic containers to collect Ganga water in. We sketched them early one morning. When we began they were completely swaddled in shawls and jackets and we could barely see their faces, but as the sun rose higher, they gradually removed their extra layers one at a time.
