Weekly Photo Challenge: Perspective

This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is about Perspective.

In the following photo, an Indian man seems to take part in a daily occurrence. The act of sitting in a quiet spot to check his phone for new messages.

However, he is not just an ordinary gentleman, taking part in an ordinary act, in an ordinary location. He’s actually a security guard, sitting in one of the colourfully gorgeous rooms of the Udaipur City Palace.

Built over nearly 400 years, the Mewar Dynasty Palace is a flamboyant fusion of Rajasthani and Mughal architectural styles, and is considered to be the largest of its type in all of Rajasthan.

Fun fact: The palace was used as a hotel for the James Bond film, Octopussy.

    • Haha weird, but the colours in that room just beg for a photo, don’t they? That Palace was so beautiful! Definitely one of the highlights of our Rajasthan tour, along with Udaipur in general…

      • Actually come to think of it, we were there in 2012 too!! When?? Maybe we were there at the same time? THAT would be REALLY weird. πŸ˜‰
