One of the Thaipusam Floats

It’s been a long day.

Yesterday I was up at 5.30am and didn’t finish the day until 2am. Today I was out shooting just after 10am and didn’t get back to the hotel until nearly 10pm. Almost all of that time has been spent with the same group of people, from a small Hindu temple, as they prepare for and then go through the celebrations.

I’ve seen some amazing things and once I have the chance to sit down, go through the images, compose myself and do some writing I’ll share a few stories. What I will say is that, Thaipusam is an extraordinary festival – not just because of the extremes that devotees go through, but also because of the way that faith, family and friendship intertwine for those who participate in this holiday.
