PICTURE CREDITS : 🏆The Artist 👉 @throughpriyaslens
One of the fun things about photographing melas and festivals is asking vendors to pose with works they have created and are displaying. I took several such images at this year's AWA Mela, in Delhi over the weekend, and will post/tag each one separately.
Meha (@mathur_meha) designs beautiful clothes under the label, Alizarin; she's seen here wearing one of her creations. They are seriously lovely clothes... I could really see myself wearing several pieces. Her website should go live soon - watch out for her name!
And I've just realized that Alizarin is an all natural red dye that's been used on clothing for centuries... 🎊

When you wear white, have nine meters of cloth wrapped around the head, and want to look your best, an umbrella becomes a good idea to battle the drizzle. But when you're in the zen zone of water collection, you improvise, using the bucket to protect the head and collect some water while at it.
The stress is rising. You’re starting to feel frustrated with situation you’re in. Or angry. Or maybe sad and like you just want to pack up and go home. But at the same time you also know that you need to calm your nerves and stay cool, to be able to think clearly, to not overreact, make the wrong decision or to not say the wrong thing in a moment of anger, overwhelm or confusion.
I’m sure you – just like me – have been in situations like these many times.
