Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Yellow.”  Whenever I see one of the these Challenges that are color related, I almost always turn to my photos from India.  I found the colors there to be extraordinary everywhere you looked.  I can always find a photo which highlights any color selection imaginable – so a yellow themed photo was easy to find.  This photo was taken in the early morning as the crowds were assembling on the banks of the Ganges River in Varanasi.  Everyone was headed for their morning prayers and baths in the sacred river.  These ladies caught my eye as we passed by because of their stunning yellow saris.

    Ah-ha! Snap! My yellow was also taken on one of the ghats on the bank of the Ganges in Varanasi. I’m exactly the same, rooting through my pictures of India for all colours, it’s such a wonderfully photogenic place.

    • LK – India is still one of the most fascinating places we’ve been. We can’t wait to go back sometime.

        It is wonderful. We had our third trip there this year, to Kerala, in the South. Very different to the North, very lush and green as well as colourful.
