Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated

Where else would I look for a photo for “saturated” other than my India album.  Virtually every picture I took there could be used for this challenge – of people, of places, wildlife, whatever!  I did a quick scan of those photos and chose this one that I hadn’t posted before.  This is a scene I captured along the Ganges River in the city of Varanasi.  As you may know, this is considered a very holy place in the Hindu religion and every day features religious activities attended by thousands upon thousands of pilgrims.  This holy man was sitting in front of a mural depicting some of the primary gods among the hundreds of million deities in the Hindu religion.

Holy man, Holy living color

Holy man, Holy art….in living color
