This is India!
Waouh ! Cette photo est magnifique !
Pour nos amis lecteurs, il va falloir expliquer ce qu'est le festival Holi, combien c'est la fête, combien petits et grands aiment se lancer de ces pigments au visage, et danser et chanter...
j'ai préféré porter le jaune et le violet pour ma part :-) et toi/vous ?

@Loulou : J'etais aussi jaune et violet avec quelques touches de bleu.
@Desi : Holi is the festival of colours in India. It means people throw those dry colour powders on each other, or put those colours in the water ... May be Nam can give us more precisions on Holi festival ?
@Jeff34: Yeah ! This is India ! But it's almost impossible to find those powders anytime except 2-3 weeks before Holi. Then 2 days after Holi, finish, all stocks have disappeared in markets.

Beautiful colors, just don't sneeze ! Wonder how they make these intense pigments ??? Maybe someone figured out how to distill the essence of rainbows right out of the sky ?

Wow - this is vivid and gorgeous. I long to buy some of those pigments to paint with and use on clay...
