Holi - Festival of Colours, Bombay, 2012

Holi is a flamboyant festival where coloured powder or watercolours are thrown on one another in celebration of the beginning of spring.

Many take it as an excuse to run wild and at times act inappropriately.

As hindu's often say "Bura na mano, Holi hai" (Don't feel offended, it's Holi)" Photos taken in Bombay/Mumbai 2012.

This is both beautiful and fun. I love this shot for so many reasons. Firstly the subject, the timing of the shot, the technique, and this is something I can relate to. Holi hain! :D

so what's the story behind this festival--what's the historical origin? i know there has to be one.

and this photo is SO COOL!!!!! you definitely deserved that DD. now if you would be so kind as to allow me to draw a portrait of it, this just has so much going on for it that i can't pass it up. if worried you can look in my gallery and all fear will be demystified.

I actually bought a proper rain cover protection bag for it the day before the festival.. but left it in the bloody camera shop!

I ended up just using a plastic bag over it, and it <somehow> did the trick haha
