The Festival of Colors is about Colors… so I figured I’d do a post focusing on the Colors at this year’s Holi festival in Utah.

Here was the blog post from a year ago

To my photographer friends out there… Go… if you dare.

I’m not saying it’s easy or totally safe for your stuff.

But i do say it’s an amazing opportunity.

If there is enough response here on the blog comments I’ll add a post about how I kept my D300 safe.

But that will be a prize for their being lets say 10 people asking. haha

Tricky… i know

But this is more or less could happen… and didn’t happen to me :)

Of course I didn’t really bring in that lens.
