Abstracts from a hindu wedding.
Thanks for looking. Cheers.
Really like the 1st and last shots - the paintings on their hands are amasing.
Just out of interest is their a reason other than privacy that their are no facial shots?
I like #2. looks like a stock shot.
Actually I am yet to post process any facial shot.
Thanks Photoboy15. Cheers.
interesting shots Nihdi.
what does that symbol in the first and second stand for?
That's a 'Swastik'. In sanskrit, it means 'god well being' or 'welcome'. It has been an auspicious symbol for hindus since Vedic times.
These are very nice images!
Jon, when I first went to Korea, they were everywhere. Not the same meaning that we would think of. They are a religious symbol.
Thanks Woodsac. Cheers.
just really neat shots.... i am guessing the rice on the coconut represents maybe long life... fertility possibly??? can you tell me?
and the paper she hands him..what is that?? and the burning??
and i am also guessing that the seeds on the paper is fertility also??
these are so very interesting..and i love the detail of the henna on her hands..i think you did a great job!!
