Beautiful thoughts to go along with the pictures, Dave.

It's not about "the shot" - it's about the journey.


Thanks, Nate. It took me a while to get to these images. I was a conflicted about attending Thaipusam but pleased that I was able to show something apart from the usual. Thanks for looking.


Your shots were definitely not run-of-the-mill Dave
Am pretty disheartened to hear how rude some of the shutterbugs were though (stepping and a devotee's offering - not cool!)


Thanks, Michelle! Now it feels like I have a personal challenge to return with a deeper story. Let's see where I am during next year's celebration.


Wonderful shots...and many of them captured the "ouch" and “trance” state. I have a confession. I have never really been to a Thaipusam procession. Participated in many Wesak processions in Penang though, really fun.
