Images From a Kite Festival

My right wrist still aches. And before you get any naughty thoughts in your demented minds, it’s because of all the clicking I did with my Lumix DMC TZ1. The occasion was Kite festival at People’s Plaza, Neckalce Road. It was organised by the Ashray Akruti, an NGO which supports hearing impaired children. I went there with the Hyderabad Photography Club, an online community of Hyderabadi amateur photographers at Flickr.

I had been looking forward to this meet ever since, Cishore, the Admin of the community suggested the idea a few weeks back. I landed at Eat Street at around 1.25 and managed to miss the rest of the group till 3.30. When we did meet, we had an amazing time! So, without wasting anymore time, here are some of the pics I shot today, beginning at my home.

Little Girl at Eat Street
Little lady is happy at being clicked.

Take it back
Patang kat gayi. Ab lapet.

Beta Billu!
Beta billu! Patang uda.

Shoot the shooters
Shooting me or the kite?

Kites in her eyes
Kites in her eyes.

That used to be a kite
That used to be a kite.

India Flying
India flying!

Semi circle
Arch in the sky.

Snake in the sky
Kites fly high!

Toka Cola
Toka Cola!

Bajrang Bali
Jai Bajrang Bali.

Nowhere to go
Stuck there for life.

And the Sun Sets
Time to head home.

I’ll post more pics at my Flickr blog. Do check them out. Thank you in advance.
