One of the few Press Photographers covering the Kumbh Mela Hindu festival. I believe that this guy is from Japan, and he definitely was carrying a lot of equipment.

I only had one DSLR camera (s Sony A55) and a couple of lenses and a bunch of batteries, and already i felt that carrying 3 Kg of camera equipment in this circumstances was hard enough.

Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.
