Festival of Lights 2012

Happy Diwali!

I was trying to take some photos of the Diwali lights in the neighborhood, but nothing comes out great because of the unevenness of my light sources, or maybe it’s just me, meh. It has been some sort of a habit for me to roam around the community with my camera at hand during this festival. Prior to the big day of the festival (’cause Diwali, apparently, is celebrated for more than a week), my neighbors were busy filling the ‘hood noisy with their firecrackers. Those two consecutive nights smell and look a lot like Manila on New Year’s eve. *suddenly misses home*

Though I’m a little late, Happy Diwali!
