It’s been long since I have posted anything here. I am not clicking as much as I used to during Project 365. But I am not yet ending this blog, my photography journey continues in 2014 and I would be doing posts more in a series rather than everyday pic.
This post is all about color of festivals – Holi.
I am back from a fabulous trip to Mathura and Agra. Mathura is known for its Holi festival, only dissapointment was I was not even prepared to click the snaps. The day I visited this temple I wasn’t expecting Holi being celebrated. This is the only decent snap I could manage after wrapping my camera with a plastic and stepping inside the temple just for few seconds. I couldn’t even see what I was clicking the crowd was maddening, but nevertheless the atmosphere was electric. I couldn’t even switch to my wide angle. It was really dissapointing.
Holi in Banke Bihari Temple
You have to have a look at the wonderful images from this temple during Holi.
Getting ready for Holi in Gokul
I took this shot in Gokul village, Mathura. Mathura celebrates Holi in the most grand way, where the events are conducted at different days in different villages. Though I missed the Holi in the famous Barsana, I was in time to see the holi in Gokul, where the famous Latmaar holi is also played. During this time the women folk beat the men with sticks (more like a symbolic gesture).
So this marks the end of my project 365. The last pic, where my brother is aptly looking towards the last sunset of the year, in a mustard field. Apologies for posting this so late, we are already deep into February.
It was such an exciting project to do, but surely exhausting. So I am taking 2014 slower and decided to do smaller projects rather than a 365.
Hope you are having a wonderful 2014.
To recap I have posted some of my personal favourites from 365 project below.
