FIFTY SHADES OF RED

[EXIF: 1/160s; f/7.1; ISO 250; FL 32.0 mm; Canon 60D]

The photo of this week is titled '50 Shades of Red' (No, I haven't read the Grey-based books- I did try, but quite honestly, found it too lame). 

The picture was taken right outside the Kalighat Mandir, Kolkata. She was selling sindoor in several shades, and looking quite vibrant herself. 

On reaching the temple premises, we were surrounded by people claiming to be 'official' priests (pandas) of the temple, and were being pestered continuously to offer some kind of offering or to get at-least a pooja done. Fed up, we simply decided not to enter the temple, and paid our respects from outside itself. To make good use of the time on our hands, we decided to walk about the place, which is when I spotted her.
