to put it simply, holi is the hindu celebration of the triumph of good over evil. named after holika (the hindu demonness who was burnt to death) it involves throwing/rubbing brightly colored powders and water on each other. there is no mercy!! everybody is a target. but it’s all in good fun.
given the nature of the celebration, i had to completely wrap my camera in plastic for protection. as a result, i had to shoot all day guessing my exposures and frames. totally blind! it was a very interesting exercise for me. kind of like shooting from the hip, i loved it!

these kids nailed me and took my whole bag of green color!
no one is safe.
and everyone has a great time.
