Ganesha Hidden in Kolkata, India


The Hindu deity Ganesha lies hidden behind tree roots along a ghat in Kolkata, India. Ironically, Ganesha is revered as the remover of obstacles.

Darkness was hidden in a deeper darkness; This all was as a sea without dimensions; The Void still held
unformed what was potential, Until the power of Warmth produced the sole One

I have long considered it one of God’s greatest mercies that the future is hidden from us. If it were not, life would surely be unbearable.

    1. Thank you Ashley and thanks for visiting.

  1. Ron, you’ve put together such an eclectic collection of hidden gems – but I particularly love the snake – what a quick eye you have! 🙂

    1. Thanks you Meredith. That reptilian eye actually belongs to a young alligator which probably made for an easier shot than a snake would have.

  2. Amazing pics again, Ron. I especially love the Angkor Wat photo.

    1. Thank you Sylvia. That photo seemed to suit the theme rather well.

  3. A fabulous gallery Ron! My pick are the beady eyes hidden in the everglades!!

    1. Thanks Madhu. Those beady eyes belong to a juvenile alligator who was on a log behind the fern with its siblings.

  4. I don’t know what to say! Except maybe, move over, Steve McCurry…

    1. Thanks Dina. What an awesome compliment

    I had to share these photos, there are beautiful and revealing. If you haven’t time to travel the world today, you can in two short minutes with this photo journal. These bold photos capture the color and people. Great job Ron Mayhew!

    1. Thank you Nancy and thanks for visiting.
