I was lucky enough to be a part of the Holi celebration hosted by the Indian Students' Association (ISA) at the University of Otago. The coloured powders were provided by the committee and only cost $3 for 2 packets which was pretty good I reckon. It was a good event that bonded people of different races and nationalities together. Everyone mingled easily with other people throughout the event and overall, I can see that many people had heaps of fun (despite being showered in cold water on a really cold day).
Here are some pictures of the colourful happy faces I captured that day.
|Interestingly, this is the only picture on my camera with me in it. Haha. I had heaps of fun and good job to the ISA committee members for making this a success.|
|Packets of coloured powders available that day. There was a huge selection of colours and that definitely brighten up my day.|
|Happily powdered. ^^|
|Everyone looked so happy and people were just chasing down one another. All the laughter in the air was definitely a good way to get endorphine pumping in the body.|
|Yup, she's indicating to me that she was having so much fun. ^^|
|More happy faces around the event.|
|In a way, the pattern of the colours looks synchronised between the four of them. Hmm.|
|He just got hit by a powder bomb. Haha.|
|Powders colouring the atmosphere. Loved it.|
|Yup, they sure were having fun.|
|It's just amazing to have such happy faces at the event.|
|And here's some more happy faces.|
|Bridging gender and nationality. Cheers.|
Well, that was all the pictures I took before I jumped into action and had my go at the people who were showering me with all the powders while photographing. Haha. Anyway, I had lots of fun and from the pictures, many people had lots of fun and when we walked home from the event, we were the centre of attraction. Haha. Luckily, nobody can recognise us covered in all the colours. Haha.
