The Price You Pay at Holi

Nobody tells you about Holi . At most you hear its wonderful which is reflected in the images of weekend sissy shooters. If you have a camera beware. You are a target. You et blinded from the powder , or wet powder with is constructed from unfiltered water. Once in pain your camera could vanish in the frenzy, or from the pure sting and pain you might drop your camera. If you are a woman you will be touched all over. by men and young boys who surround you. You can call it what you like but in India most people don't meet white europeans or American so there is natural curiosity. Hands on you is the oder of the event.

    I guess this answers my question about how you protect your cameras during Holi. Hopefully your equipment made it through ok.
