Behind the Image
During my first six month stint in India I was lucky enough to spend some time in Rishikesh, which is where this photo was taken. Rishikesh is located in the Himalayan foothills next to the famous Ganges River. It’s a city known for their ashrams and temples and is a destination to many who want to pursue studies in yoga and meditation.
It was the only city I had ever been to where both alcohol and non-vegetarian food were both prohibited. While here I truly did feel at peace and felt very fortunate to experience a city that was quite unlike any other.
