All so devoted and lost in deep fervent prayer, I simply couldn't resist capturing this one!!

Fearing the faithful devotee would hear my shutter trip and ruin the shot, I had to make sure of one quick pot shot .....

Personally, I could look at this for hours on end and the shot keeps hitting me. I hope it goes down well with you, viewed large preferably ..... the detail of the graffiti on the shrine wall is impressive in the larger shot.

Thanks for viewing.

Joe

It is nice to see, that there are still people giving themselves time to contemplate. This shot has some impact, Joe.

This is a great candid shot, Joe, that really suits the black and white. Loved the graffiti detail in the large version.

Great shot I can see why you couldn't resist it, well seen and caught, a lovely B/W it would have lost some thing in colour.
