Cricket on Stones, by Vishal Arora

Ghats of Banaras are full of buzz in morning and evening time. There are lots of tourists from all the nooks and corners of world and plenty of locals visiting the ghats for the sake of relaxation. There are so many fascinating events taking place among which the most famous one is Ganga Arti in evening time. I so happened to stroll to one of the ghats where these local kids were playing cricket. They have their own set of rules as ball can be hit into water anytime.
The view looked splendid with the panoramic landscape of ghats in backdrop and especially the bridge on right hand side. It was late in evening with low light and I liked the idea of having motion blur signifying liveliness of games, so I went for pretty slow shutter speed.
