Drexel Holi 2014

Holi is a festival celebrating the arrival of spring. Part of the celebration involves the painting of people with colored powders. Painting in this case may be more thought of as a contact sport. This will take place at Drexel Park, 32nd & Powelton Ave. This most likely will be a moving shoot, less a sporting event, more a melee. Folks may want to consider telephoto lenses and/or weather covering their cameras. Depending on the wind, the powders can travel.

    One of the highlights of last years trip to India. Needed to buy throwaway white pajamas to survive.

    Damn! Sounds like fun (assuming the camera doesn't get clogged with coloured powder), but I've already make commitments for that morning.
