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!
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!!
Awesome Kaustav, good to see the holi of a place which is quite near to my heart as well. Saw Vidhan Road in one of the pic of yours 🙂
Thank you Alok! That photo was near the YMA ground in Babupara! I ll put up a post of a previous pujo I was there…that should cover all the near and dear lanes too 🙂
