Perhaps, it was one of the risky photoshoots that was made- @Tomato festival, Pleasanton. The risk was not at all on me, but on the camera. Since when the first tomato went up in air, people became so excited and started throwing tomatoes each other frantically. Once the initial stock was over, they started to pick it up from the ground along with the mud.

Without any time interval, tomato patches and sprinkled water were falling over the lenses. Though I had taken filters and rainsleeves, it hardly helped me to withstand in that 'battlefield' and I decided to quit halfway... put the gears back in backpack and made myself one among the crowd :)

PS: The organizers claim that all of the tomatoes used during this event were previously marked for disposal and not fit for human consumption.

Camera used: Canon 550D with Canon 10-22mm and Canon 55-250ISII
