Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense


I must admit that I was tempted to just post a picture of the guy that currently occupies our oval office…

I thought that might be a little crass so I opted for a different interpretation for this week’s challenge: Dense.  I took this photo from a small boat off one of the largest Ghats in the holy city of Varanasi, India.  Tens of Thousands of people gather every night to participate in the prayers led by the holy men along the banks of the river Ganges.  Our guide told us that during the religious holidays, Varanasi is the densest population center on the planet.  While I cannot verify that information, our attempt to exit the area after the prayers certainly had to go through one of the densest and most chaotic traffic jams I have ever seen.

Just a small service….

    • Linda – when we went, we tried to alternate between a couple of days in the cities to 3 or 4 days in the wilderness. It was a great way to balance the trip and maintain sanity…..

  3. Crass ideas are sometimes good 😉 ! But this is a much more arresting image. And yes, India can do ‘dense’ so very well, in so many contexts.

    • Well said Margaret – India is very dense in its variety of densities…
