Last weekend I attended the Holi celebrations in Richmond, with Giulia and others. It was chaos but hilarious! On the way there, Giulia and I were worried about getting coloured powder over our cameras… but we should’ve known it’d be inevitable. To be honest, it was much more fun once I relinquished control and accepted my colourful fate – even if I still have purple specks over all my camera gear a week later.
This dashing photographer was much better prepared. He had his Canon 5D MKII carefully wrapped in plastic secured round the lens hood. Lesson learnt.
This is how I looked at the tame stage. Later on, all the colours blended into a blue-ish purple, and I had to walk home looking like I’d been severely beaten up. Awkward!
