TTL: Holi @ Siliguri

Last year, around this time, I was in Bangalore, with a bunch of colleagues who turned out to be close friends, smearing each other with colour and having fun. This year, am at my granny’s place, in the town where I was born, the gateway to the North East India, nestled at the foothillls of the Shivalik mountain ranges, Siliguri.

Anyway, its Holi again. The festival of colors and joy and fun. I missed my friends pretty much, and the only way I was going to suppress the feeling, was by going about making some photos! So, here goes, Holi, through my lens!

Pre Holi masks for sale!


This holi, a new hairdo 😛


To the next locality…




Decked up for the next round!


I like the peek!


Two face??



The last photo and the featured image, I couldnt find a model to try the shots on, so, I became the model and taught my aunt (Mummum) to shoot using a DSLR! A few trial and errors, yes, but after about an hour of training, she managed to get the focus correct and shoot straight! Good results I ll say!

Add some color to your page, show off your holi shots too!!
