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.
