TH05: Phra Kaew Photoshoot

This devotee was dipping the lotus bud in the water filled basin and then sprinkling the water over her head. Perhaps Ray can share with us the significance of this. She was being photographed by another photographer, an authorized one I suppose, not seen in this frame.

You did a lovely job of catching her in the act... I'd like to hear what Ray has to say...

It does seem to be of particular significance, Ayush, so you captured it well.

What a delightful creature Ayush, whatever the significance of the water, it is certainly not doing her any harm.

She has a beautiful face and you did a great job with this portrait. Chad is right, it won't do her harm.

The use of water in rituals is normally associated with cleaning. I also wonder what the meaning is in this ritual.

She looks like she is getting a bit fed up being photographed. A great capture, though.
Nice....
It is a lovely picture of this young woman Ayush, whatever the ritual is for she seems to be enjoying it.
better watch out Ayush...
quite an interesting piece of picture here
Looks like an interesting custom. Perhaps the water has been blessed. Lovely shot Ayush

It is a kind of blessing herself - but you can also bless other persons with lotus buds dipped in water--then sprinkling it on the heads. A fine custom - and interesting photo- that reminds a bit of the Catholic ritual sprinkling the forehead with sacred water.
A tropical version of mistletoe perhaps??? the background to her is amazing!
A lovely portrait Ayush!
Me thinks she has done that before smile
she's a beautiful model Ayush so you did good....petersmile
That is a nice candid shot.
