This weekend I was walking through my neighborhood when I saw tons of people walking about covered in colored powder. I wasn’t sure if it was a color run, but it was Holi! The indian festival celebrating spring! WOOHOOO! I have always wanted to see one of those! I followed the crowds with my camera and there was a whole concert and festival happening. It was SO SO SO fun. Like one of the funnest parties I have been to in a LONG time. Indian music is awesome. Indian food is awesome. Holi is awesome. I ran around with my fuji, shooting with both a slow shutter – to get these beautiful blurred crowds- and then with fast shutter to get fun portraits of the crowd! It was already the end of the day so everyone was covered in powder and I missed seeing the powder flying through the air…. still amazing though. Oh, I tried really hard to stay clean because of my camera, but alas! It was not in the cards, people smeared my face with color too! I hope you like the photos!

I added some of these to UPLO. Big blurry colorful plexis are always nice!
