Thaipusam: Photo Walk Participant’s Images

Thaipusam: Photo Walk Participant’s Images
An Offering Photographed by Scott Rust

“The Offering”  Photographed by Scott Rust

 

This weekend was filled with endless screams, the rolling of eyes, bodies being pierced by spears, the sticking out of tongues (also pierced) and more; and that was just my photo walk participants!  Seriously–I had a great time with 6 to 7 local expats showing them Thaipusam (Day 1 and Day 2) and helping them find just that right angle or moment. I thought I would take this post and show you the work of two participants. The first is the work of Scott Rust, check out more of Scott’s work HERE. The second group of images are by Daniel Cohn. You can see more of Daniels work HERE.
