Happy Onam!

Happy Onam!

Onam is a festival mainly celebrated in Kerala every year. It is a harvest festival, although there is a mythological story to it too. You can read it here.

Seen here is a typical flower decoration/arrangement called pookallam.

Onam is on 23rd August this year.

One more from Russell market (Probably the last). There are lots of kinds of people there, and most of these street vendors were just really enthusiastic about having their picture taken. This guy was not doing anything, just started to “pretend” to work when pictures were being taken. Turned out to be a good portrait 🙂
