Looking back thru photos is how I remember places. They bring back such strong memories, and it makes me happy to be able to remember them more vividly thru photographs.
*In a Cloud of Color – Holi Festival // Spanish Fork, Utah*
My Favorites | 13 for 2013 (4 of 13)
How could a ‘Favorites of 2013’ collection be complete without a shot from the Holi Festival of Colors in Spanish Fork? It was a 100 mile an hour week long journey from Denver to Salt Lake City and back, with two extremely colorful days spent at the festival.
Now the question is, who wants to go next year?
Here’s a great one for Monday!

Masked – Festival of Colors // Spanish Fork, Utah
A little ‘down’ time during the Festival of Colors, enjoying the atmosphere and listening to some amazing music. I believe this was during MC YOGI, who was one of my favorite artists of the entire weekend. There were a lot of these masks around, protecting all the festival goers of the copious amounts of color flying thru the air.

The Holi Festival – Part 2
I can definitely see myself making it back to the Holi Festival in the future. Maybe I’ll shoot for seeing the original in India…
This little pooch was having a good time at the festival.
Another throw, with such a great backdrop.
I’m fairly certain that this child threw color on me as I walked by, you can see the guilty little smirk.

Who are you pointing that GoPro at?

Off the Grid
It’s been a while since I’ve been posting on here, and for good reason. I want to make sure the content that I bring you as readers is as good as it can be; not rushed/short changed photos and writings. I do hope that you’ve been following along on Facebook and Google+ for the updates, and some behind the scenes, but in case you haven’t, this week I’ll put up some of what I’ve been sharing over there.
The Holi Festival – Part 1
I’m calling this part 1 since I’ve got a pretty good handful of photos from the festival, and wanted to break it up in to two different posts.
I’ll be honest, Holi for photographers is like being a kid in a candy store. There are so many interesting and happy and fun loving people all in one place, all with one intention, to celebrate this wonderful festival in Spanish Fork, Utah. So every hour, there would be a countdown, and all at once everyone would jump up in the air and throw their color as wildly as possible. It was actually all very quick, so getting the perfect moment was a bit tricky. Luckily, there was pretty great backdrops on both sides, this one having the Krishna temple, and the other direction having white capped mountains.
A shout out to Smugmug, where I host my Gallery, and their motto. “Billions of happy photos. Millions of passionate customers.” Seen here on a new friend, Roma. If you’re looking to purchase photos, click the link above. Or just peruse the pages of photos at your leisure.
I’m convinced, she’s magic. It’s like a little sorcerers ball in the palm of her hand. Britta took a break from shooting for the day to do some tricks for me. 🙂
