3d pan white

A glance inside, a glimpse outside

"I was dreaming of that day when you came my way

The smell of mangos, that impatient side-glance of yours

You took my hand

Pulled me inside the covered entrance to that palace

Time stopped

A life later I remember I caught a glimpse of you making your way outside the porch

I tried to follow you through the crowd

It has been a long while and I am still there

Inside is coming a breath of fresh air

It’s not the mango season anymore, winter is calling

I was waiting that you may hold me by the hand again

I gave a quick glance at my watch

Time stopped..."


This was shot under the porch of an old palace in Varanasi (Benaras) which has been divided into several small apartments, deeper inside there is a garden with palm and mango trees and the rest of the building which is left to some administration.

From the street it is not possible to know that such a beautiful place is there.

After the entrance time has stopped.
