Thaipusam 2010

The first time i shot Thaipusam was about 3 years ago. At that time, i told myself its not gonna be anymore of it. The fact of the massive crowd and the bad traffic makes me think twice about going.

This year, i just knew i need to do it again. My shutterbug buddies did think of going but most did not keen enough when it comes to rise early and fighting for a parking. Fine, I decided a night before to do it no matter what even if i had to go alone. I think i need to get my adrenaline rush and fall in love with photography again. Being tied with wedding shoots and back to back shooting assignments makes me like a machine. I need to get my groove back before i become a trigger happy shooter. LOL.

Was accompanied by a non-photog friend who don't mind experiencing the culture. Its not something that easy to capture a good scene whilst having to fight for air. I was squeezing myself among thousands of devotees, photographers and tourists around the world who were there to witness the ritual offerings to lord murugan.

I did not regret doing this, again.
