Hedging bets

A stall at the entrance to the Mother Teresa mother-house. A few Santa hats too, just in case. When we asked why all the public infrastructure in Kolkata is painted blue and white we were told that they were Mother Teresa's colours. Pretty much all the other possibilities had political connotations, something to be avoided at all costs!
Great shot and interesting info. Someone is either camera shy or shielding from the sun ;-)

@ludwigsdiana Sun, in this case, he didn't even see me.

Oh Marnie this made me laugh out loud. Definitely hedging his bets.

And the stall keeper wanted to be avoided too!!

And little Santa statues too!! :)

What an odd contrast- Mother Teresa and Santa!

Yup, I believe in praying at all altars too. Looks as if someone doesn’t want to be photographed

@gilbertwood I think he had the sun in his eyes.

@robz Oh yes, never let a commercial opportunity go by.

@olivetreeann Just what I thought Ann. Wonder what Mother Teresa would've made of that?

@jgpittenger And fair enough too. I think the bloke had the sun in his eyes, I doubt he even knew I was there.

Very interesting info. The Santa hands look very odd but eye catching!

Ha ha, maybe he was just getting into the festive spirit while taking up the commercial opportunity presented by Christmas :)

@merrelyn Dead right on the commercial aspect!!

@angelikavr I thought the juxtaposition was hilarious.

Surprised to see the Santa hats!
