Holi in Hong Kong

Holi has got to be the most fun festival in the world.  It’s such a blast for the whole family.  It is always a bit of a toss up with the weather –  unlike India, it does not fully warm up here.  But today even though the day began cool, by mid-day the sun was out and made it perfect for a wet Holi.  We joined a Holi party being organised at Chung Hom Kok beach.  It was quite something and there were almost 2,000 people there.  I had taken the Olympus TG-3.  I did think about a fancier camera but haven taken those in earlier years, this year I wanted to get in the middle of the action without any real worries.  So the TG-3, which is waterproof was perfect for the job.  

I was quite amazed by the quality of the photos – all taken in iAuto mode.  Ofcourse, there’s a certain amount of post processing but its all standard Lightroom stuff.  Total time for 50+ photos? Less than 15 minutes!  And that included selecting the 50 from over 150 photos to begin with.
