Spring Festival Of Colour

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Oh boy, about three weeks ago on the 8th of March the beautifully vibrant Holi festival took place around the world. It's one of those amazing Hindu spring traditions where participants throw bright scented powder and perfume at each other in celebration of the new season. It’s a brilliant way to drop all your inhibitions and simply play, dance and laugh till your belly starts hurting :) Aren't those photos fun? Loves, wouldn't you love to take part in something like that? (I totally would). xo

P.S: Also, do you remember the mind-blowing midsummer night in Poland?
P.P.S: The beautiful India!

That looks pretty incredible! I would love to take pictures at something like that. There's a 5K race series that throws colored powder on you at each kilometer. I'm planning on doing it in October and I'm pretty pumped :) It's called the Color Run if you want to look it up.

I love looking at the images - so much joy and fun. I don't think I would do it, I dislike crowds and I think my allergies might not like it.

wow, these photos are amazing! Love the vibrant color, no way you won't emerge totally happy from something like that :-)
(though I have to be honest, I might be concerned about breathing the colored powder in since it's being thrown in the air and all)

watching this festival is definitely on my life's big to-do list... although I think I'd rather watch from above and photograph it than be in it (even if it does look like fun!).

The "quilted jackets" are a big hit in the market. It comes with a two-way zip along with a removable drawstring hood. The upper arm has a smart flap pocket along with a felted logo. The hem too has a drawstring and the sleeve cuffs come with a ruched elastic snap. The material of quilted Moncler jackets is 1% polyurethane and 99% polyamide. They have a 100% genuine down filling and 100% polyamide lining. These jackets can be worn easily on bare skin too and feel immensely comfortable and soft.

Pink down jacket appears too sweet although it has a feeling of fresh complexion. There is a method to neutralize the sweet feeling and make it look capable and not squeamish on you, that is, mixing with handsome jeans and short black boots. You must be a star among gentlemen.

Holi, the festival of color, sounds like a lot of fun. The celebration itself, well the color festival, is enough to draw much of attention. And since this year's Holi is coming, I'd like to express my holi wishes to all! Have a great celebration of Holi!
