I have often argued that the type of camera one uses has little to do with how good a photographer you are. However, as in the opening shot here, my Nikon d800 came through big time. As I pointed the camera at this man, I could see that he was going to colour bomb me. I waited for the throw, clicked, and turned. Later, I was amazed to see that I got the shot.
Here are some final thoughts and images from the Holi celebrations:
Around any corner, this is what could be waiting for you. In the image below they are using water rifles but it could just as easily be someone tossing buckets of coloured water off rooftops.
Hands reaching to touch Ganesh, a deity looked to for good luck and prosperity. And, “Please put off your shoes” says the sign outside the Bankey Bahari. Not exactly a trusted shoe storage.
I have no words for these three boys, just a big smile whenever I look at them.
The beauty of happiness.
My next blog will be from Bhopal.
