Prayer at the Temple

    Prev Next

    I found this woman praying at the temple in Orccha, India. I was there during a spiritual festival. The Hindu people would walk around the temple several times, stopping to place their head and hands against the wall in prayer. Other times, they would lay flat on the ground for 30 - 60 seconds. There are over 300 million gods in the Hindu religion. Orccha was my favorite town in India.

    the-father, Michael Y. Wang, and 25 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I like this one. Sometimes uncluttered compositions are the best. Thanks for your description, too.

      Hi Dave! I saw this one when you posted, but haven't had time to comment. It's really stuck with me. Very powerful. Love your use of the negative space of the wall. Seems to convey more of a sense of the ceremony.
