HAPPY DIWALI

I give you light...

Diwālī is the Hindu Festival of Lights. For Jains(Bhuddists)it is one of the most important festivals, and beginning of the Jain year.
It is also a significant festival for the Sikh faith.

Diwali is one of the most popular and eagerly awaited festivals of India. It is celebrated for 5 consecutive days in Hindu month of Ashwayuja which usually correspond to the months of October or November. Hindus, Jains and Sikhs celebrate Diwali and use the occasion to celebrate life and strengthen relationships.

Typically, celebrations focus on lights and lamps, particularly traditional diyas, although electric lights have become widespread.
Fireworks may also be associated with the festival in some regions.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

I brought in the garden lights ( 8 plastic tubes with LED lights inside), decided to have some fun with them in the studio again. Here I'm using 2 tubes, I tried different techniques with the studiolights. To freeze me=washed out the lights too much.
So, the old (in the darkroom days with film!) joke was always... that photographers do it in the dark! Here's PROOF!

A happy Diwali to All friends around the world.
