Weekly Photo Challenge: Lines

If you are ready to brave the hot and humid weather, you are in for a treat …

It’s festival season here in Kerala and all your senses will be stretched to the max. I guarantee you…

Last day, when I was working from home, heard drum beats and loud announcement that a temple festival related procession is on it’s way.

Wasting no time, I ran with my camera and started clicking and thought of this week’s theme, ‘Lines’.




Temple festivals are community events and almost everyone in the village contributes towards it.

It could be either money or whatever they produce, like rice, vegitables etc;

Traditional Kerala feast will be served during the festival with numerous curries rich in spices.


I have to admit that no camera could perfectly reproduce the festival colours and sounds, you have to experience it 🙂

  1. Sreejith, this a beautiful post about a colourful and unique festival. It was so good to know about this festival. I just loved the procession … so graceful and so organised. I agree that photos can not do justice to the scene but for us who have not seen the scene, your lovely pictures depict the perfect scene.

    1. It’s a different kind of festival specific to a temple and not a seasonal one.

      But, the whole community contributes whatever they produce towards the common feast and meeting other expenses relate to the festival.

      Thank you so much for your words of appreciation, Sidran 🙂

    1. I know, it’s really important to keep your camera at a quickly accessible place and also need to make sure that there is battery and Card inside it 🙂

      More than once, I carried camera to some nice places without either the battery or card…

      Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your appreciative comments, Sweta 🙂
