2011 Deck – Week 43


Every year I tell myself that I will try to get some really good photos during the festival of Diwali (or Deepavali), the Hindu Festival of Lights, I haven’t really made the effort to do this for the last few years.  This year I thought I could at least get a photo of one of the many men (yes, and sometimes women/girls) who spin lighted steel-wool in the streets.  I think to myself, it can’t be hard right? How can I mess it up?

And then I forget the Tripod….

So, I really wanted to use one of those shots, so here it is 🙂

  1. Dude, that is so amateur! 🙂 If I remembered the right gear every time I would have to do a pooja or something. It is either you forget to bring the right gear, or you bring all 10 tons except the one piece you need.

    Good shot – even without the tripod. Its amazing all the detail that you captured, the sparks that fly, quickly burn out in a few seconds and the scene is gone. Its really awesome to look at!
