When I saw this man in Haridwar, India, (often referred to as a Sadhu) I had to take his picture.
Sitting in his own little world and seemingly unaware of anything else going on around him.
The paradox it provokes is truly funny by challenging what we might assume about Sadhus or anyone
who has taken a spiritual oath or devoted their lives away from the mainstream or conventional lifestyle.
Capturing something of a child-like essence, he made me think of the way some things in life are universally enjoyed.
And perhaps the greatest paradox is in how being a child is always inside all of us again.
