Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

Solitray in Calcutta
A few moments of solitary time in Kolkata, India

Finding a few moments of solitary time in crowded Kolkata, India, a city of over 15 million people is no easy task. But this man has done just that. He has found a relatively cool place away from the the cities stiffing heat for a little solitude and a noon time nap in a hallway in the Nakhoda Masjid Mosque.

  1. Nice colors!

  2. Finding solitary time in India is definitely not an easy task!

  3. Nice! Very sneaky capture here. 🙂

  4. Have to agree with Cardinal! Lovely capture! just how long did you stay in Calcutta? I doubt native residents have so many photos of their city 😀

    1. I was in Calcutta for two weeks. One week photographing Durga and one mostly street photography. I took over 5700 photos so yes I am sure I have more than the average resident. 🙂 It was a difficult trip but such a fabulous experience.

  5. Good for him to have worked it out. 🙂 Love the colours in this pic, Ron. The reds are really hot, but the blues and mauves really cool it down.

    1. Thank you. Obviously, the colors are what make the photo.

    1. Thank you Z. Yes, and so unexpected for a back hallway on the second floor of the Mosque.

    1. Thank you Bams and thanks for visiting.

  6. You know what I love the most? The different colours in one same place…I think it is great!!!

    1. Thank you. The colors are what makes the photo. Otherwise it would be pretty mundane.

  7. Gorgeous colors, and give a new meaning to solitary. So many of this week’s posts are austere. There’s something nicely indulgent in this moment. Lovely.

    1. Thank you. Yes, the colors surprised me given it was in a Mosque.

    1. Thank you. As a photographer, it really works well.

  8. I was thinking how hard that floor must be…
