Saavan

Every year thousands of pilgrims make their way to get water from the Ganga during the Hindu month of Saavan.  These pilgrims generally come by barefoot and are dressed in orange.  They walk hundreds of kilometers to reach their goal.

One of the most popular activities in Banaras is to take a morning boat ride.  You never know what you’re going to see, but it’s always exciting.  We love taking friends and tourists out on the river.  Worshippers come out at sunrise to bath and offer their morning devotions, fisherman begin their daily work, washermen do their laundry and children swim and play.  It’s definitely something not to miss.

Varanasi Ghats

A view of the Varanasi Ghats from the river Ganges.  The best time to photograph this iconic scene is from a sunrise boat ride.  Get up early!  You want to already be in your boat when that amazing morning sun hits the stairs.

We have been doing photo training for some years now, but we are excited to begin a new phase of Rebecca Cipolla Photography- photo tours.  It’s something we’ve been looking at adding to our business for some time. As we are traveling between Asia and America so much of the time now, there has been a growing desire from people we know for us to help them make the most of their travel photos.  What better way than to train people in the use of their cameras and then to help them take those memorable images in the most amazing places in the world.

And so, along with the beautiful portraits that you’ve come to expect from Cipolla photographers, we’re going to be posting images taken on our travels by our trainers as well as our students in our international photo tours workshops!

Here we are showing one of the breathtaking views of the Vancouver shoreline.
