Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic


India is not exactly a place that I would classify as  “Monochromatic.”  Virtually everything is awash in color as well sound and aroma.  I did recall this photo that I took inside one of the temples in the ancient city of Khajuraho.  In contrast to many modern (western) places of worship, the areas inside are small, intimate, and intended for private reflection and meditation.  This Indian woman was enjoying a quiet moment inside the temple early in the morning before the throngs of people began to show up.  I thought the light coming through the window reflecting against the wall and onto her face made an interesting scene.  The tone of the light, the walls, and her face all blend into a single pallet and resulted in one of my favorite photos from this incredible place.

Muted colors, quiet moment
