Photo Of The Week: BENNI
LOVE THEM ESPECIALLY THE PAINTED LADY
First, Nik, wonderful banner shot. The colors and composition make it really outstanding. I love your shots for this week, you always present a glimpse into your world. The top one is a tree we call (I think) a palmetto bush, beautiful. Great shot of the figurine in blue and her friends behind her. The yellow flower is perfect, lovely shot. And I also like the red tray very much, is it meant for sauces? Whatever, it is something I would just love to have. Wonderful, all.
Hi Nik !! Great shots for this week's theme. Good capture of the palm-fronds in the first shot. Very colourful lady statuette in the second shot. Nice yellow flower in the third shot. My fave is definately the last shot. Love both the colour and the design. Could you tell us something about it?
We just had a festival called Devali which is also known as the festival of lights. Street vendors start selling decorative items to customers. It can be decorative household items, colored earthen lamps either for decorative purpose or using it as a decorative earthen oil filled lamp. Rice puff type of stuff and candies made of sugar are sold while folks decorate their homes with electric lights or oil filled diyas/candles. Fireworks are set off in the evening and folks have tons of fun enjoying themselves. The red circular item is a bunch of clay lamp try which is filled with oil, a wick is placed inside it and it lighted.
Am speechless with your wonderful insight into the Indian way of celebrating Divali. Beautiful photos and wonderful colours and congratulations on the super banner shot.
