Chandiagrh Carnival

I had the chance to go to the Chandigarh carnival today, its an annual do at the leisure valley. Went there about 4pm and Maybe because I was sleepy, or maybe there were no pretty girls around like last year, I found myself getting slightly bored. I longed to get back to my room and get some sleep. Eventually, thats what I did. I took some pictures though,the analogue ones still need to be developed but the phone cam pics I am posting. Enjoy.

I thought the stilt walker and the little girl made an interesting contrast, and an interesting arrangement. Could not get a better picture like this with my regular SLR, have become too used to automation. Felt a bit rusty using a manual SLR for candid work. RF's I simply cant get the hang of. I have to get that AF DSLR soon.

There was a Gatka party there as well. Gatka is a Sikh martial art and is practised mostly by the Nihangs. Its great fun to watch when done well. Hola Mohalla in Anandpur Sahib is always a great place to see the gatka, maybe someday I will post pictures of the Hola Mohalla.

Went out to have dinner with a friend, saw this cycle standing by an old banyan tree that is swathed in hose like light. Thought it looked quite pleasing.
More later.

Once again I have to tell you how much I enjoy your pictures. Someday I'd like to travel and see those thing for myself, but until then I'll keep checking out your blog to see what I'm missing.
