Metta Carnival 01

Recently I took some shots for a fund raiser by a local Buddhist charity and welfare organization, some of which I will be putting up. I deliberately threw the lens of focus to take a shot of small flickering lamps at an altar.

I can imagine the colourfully flickering -'flackernden' lamps - a fine tribute for the fund raiser!
Worked a treat here.

Sometimes it is good to be out of focus Ayush, quite restful.
