A certain warmth and initimacy descends at dusk.

I was visiting this village in the middle of the Thar for the first time.

It was Eid.

It is a privilege to be able to visit a place not as a passing traveller but along with someone who has spent almost two decades there, to be welcomed like an old friend.

Yes, always. That is why I like our work so much. To go places where others have been.

your images are very nice..Dusk photos can sometimes be even more dramatic than those taken in the pitch-black sky, as the added light helps illuminate details easily missed in a completely dark environment..
