I was asked to attend at the Shree Hindu Mandir Temple in Leeds to photograph the Namaste Group’s celebration of older people. Thank you Usha Bhardwaj for the invitation !!
I was mindful that this would complement my exhibition at Leeds City Museum perfectly.
Usha invited me into the adjacent Temple to view it and my request to take some photographs was warmly met. I was humbled by such wonderful and friendly people.
I cannot believe how beautiful the Temple was….simply stunning !
We left the Temple and returned to the hall where the celebration was being held.
This included an incredibly relaxing and calming chair exercise session choreographed by Zoobin Surty.
Zoobin, I have to say, you are the epitome of ‘calm’. You also have a wicked sense of humour !!
I was thoroughly enjoying this assignment and then…..they fed me ! Fantastic food, fantastic company and a fantastic time !!
Usha and Zoobin, thank you so much !!
