I came upon this man just outside the gate to the temple. He was checking his phone which is cradled in his right hand. He's definitely equipped for a lot of walking on his pilgrimage.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great portrait capture of this pilgrim!! It seems "out of place" to see a cell phone here. Thankfully, it's out of view.

Shiva from Berwick, Canada

It amazes me always --- where and when somebody - old or young - pulls out the phone - speaking, listening, texting, and certainly not being interested in his surrounding ... might be, just buying more shares ........!!!!
A great capture and fascinating portrait, Steve ---- kindest regards as always Monika
