Happy Holi!

The Holi Festival turned out to be AMAZING and colourful! After the morning water balloon fight, we spent the day with an Indian family on the beach swimming in the Ganges, water rafting and eating the most amazing food EVER all in the foothills of the Himalayas. The day was absolutely perfect. I wish I had more photos to show you right now, but because the day was messy I didn't want to bring the digital cameras out, so I captured the day on 120 film using my Holga. So pictures will come soon enough!
We will be leaving Rishikesh tomorrow morning, which is sad, but I have to look on the bright side...we will be heading back in to the jungle to see wild elephants at Rajiji National Park. So I will blog about that experience soon enough!

After reading you previous post, I was really curious to know if you were going to bring your camera out for Holi. I think I'd be too scared. I'm excited to see what you've got on Holi with your Holga (did it survive?) I have a feeling those are going to be some AWESOME pictures!

Ha, the Holga luckily survived! Whether or not the exposed film will for another month is another question, but I have it all in a safe place in my backpack...which isn't always so safe, lol. I think the colours will look awesome on film too!
