Holi – Festival of Colour (Brisbane) – Mar 2014

“Holi”, the popular Hindu spring festival, is one of India’s most important holidays.  It is known as the festival of colours, (and sometimes festival of love) and is famous as a carnival of colours – where everyone plays, chases and colours each other with dry powder and coloured water, with some carrying water guns and coloured water-filled balloons for a water fight.

I have long been inspired by the amazing bright and vibrant photos that I have seen of this festival in India – so couldn’t resist the opportunity to attend a local (Sunnybank, Brisbane) festival.  It was on a much smaller scale than the traditional Indian events – but had every bit as much enthusiasm from those attending.

Here are a selection of my favourite shots from today’s event :
