In the photographer's words: "I'd just arrived in Varanasi, a holy city along the Ganges River, when I looked down from the roof of my guest house and saw this boatsman resting atop his colorful boat. Varanasi boatsmen make their living shuttling pilgrims and tourists along the river early in the morning to bathe and watch the sunrise. After taking a boat tour myself, I could definitely understand why a man like this would want to rest by the afternoon!"
