2011 Deck – Week 12


Compared to the previous weeks in this year, this week has been generous in terms of photographs, well, I won’t count the week with Mashramani, as that day alone resulted in a plethora of images.

I haven’t processed half the images from this week as yet, but I already have a favourite, not the best of the week, but a favourite none-the-less.

Last Sunday was Phagwah (or Holi) in Guyana and several other countries where the Hindu religious is popular, my knowledge of the Hindu religion is that good, but from what I remember of it from “school-days”, it’s a day of “equality”, when castes have no meaning, when race is not an issue, when everyone looks the same at the end of the day, not only in God’s eyes gut to our own.  When everyone is covered in the colourful powders of Phagwah day, they all look the same.

I really wanted to get into the “Khendra” but I doubt that my camera would survive that one, so I settled for some images of my daughter and her cousin playing Phagwah up in Good Hope village on the East Coast of Demerara. 🙂

  1. Hi Michael
    Great photo. You captured the joys of youthfulness and for the older folkes like me to appreciate and reflect on the new generation. Kind regards. Cecil

  2. Looks like she had a wonderful time. Did not know that making every one look alike was the goal. Pity they do not make that every day of the year. All of us could do with the lesson the event teaches. 🙂
