Diwali in February

Priya of the Plum Tree has tagged me to reveal the Sixth picture in the Sixth folder and I must say I was curious to see what exactly my sixth folder held and which picture it would be.

This the Sixth picture in the Sixth folder. I had forgotten this one.Its a picture of the apartment complex I live in taken at night during Diwali. Diwali is the festival of light and (sound I might add) here in India, usually in November.All the buildings are draped in garlands of lights which get turned on at night, its a very pretty sight, this picture doesn't exactly capture that aspect very well and the fireworks can be deafening.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick the 6th picture in your 6th folder

2. Post the story that goes along with it

3. Tag 6 other people to do the same thing and let them know.

And I'm tagging

1.Suzanne, The Farmer's Wife who lives nine miles from anything and writes about a diverse array of subjects. I love the old black and white photographs she presents from time to time and writes about the person/people in them with so much feeling,revealing aspects of life so typical of a particular place or time. Maybe the 6th picture in the sixth folder will be one such.

2.T&S of A Walk in the Wilderness. Their brand of wildlife photography will blow you away, check out the post about the Tiger.

3.Karen of Contemporary Embroidery. She makes swaddling bands and much more.

4.Cathy of November Moon. I came across her blog recently and her blog has been promptly added on to my google reader. I do like her style of embroidery.

5.Kayla Coo who makes the most amazing embroidered trees on felt pins.Her colour sense is what amazes me most - absolutely beautiful.

6.Rolling in Sugar Dust - this last one is devoted to photographing food and is one of the six blogs Archana authors.

Anyone else just dying to reveal what the sixth photograph in the sixth folder is? Then consider yourselves tagged.

First things first - I need to cook up a storm and start feasting before I start photographing the feasts but then there are so many chroniclers of feasts I think I should desist besides I have a waistline to care for!!!!

Thank you so much for tagging me on this one. I have seen this meme going around (sometimes it's a different number, such as the 5th photo in the 5th folder).

You're really going to be surprised when you see the photo and the story behind it.

Thanks again.

Chris Diwali is a beautiful festival, entire houses are lit up with lights nowadays, or small oil lamps called diyas and the skies light up with fireworks - not very good for the environment but its certainly pretty.

Those "comment deleted" entires are my comments which first appeared in duplicate and then in triplicate! so I had to delete them.
I haven't had to deal with nasty comments to date.

pRiyA said...

goodness dear! duplicate? triplicate? had you left the comments there maybe you'd have gotten to the hundred comments mark before you know who...

It looks like a colorful place to live. Fireworks are always such a planned event here we never bother going to them.
