Fascinating colorful post, interesting to see so many camels in one place.

Jacob said...

This is fantastic post! What wonderful photographs. You've captured so well this event, the people and animals involved ... one can almost breathe the air.

Definitely a cultural exposition ... wish I could have been there and experienced it.

I'm sure, like you say, it was great fun!

Carver said...

Great shots from the festival. Looks like it would be so much fun.

The seventh one down might be my favorite just because of all the camels gathered together like that-wow! I bet those tourists would be happy to have a picture like you took The white horse stance is pretty amazing too including the closer image of the young camels.There fur looks fuzzy. I like the contrast of the men with their turbans sitting around..then I saw the man on the brown and white horse with his jacket on- That is so unreal! I'm impressed!! You really did a nice job..

Some of these horses are just beautiful animals. I like the camels too. I just do not get to see the camel where I live. It looks very hot and dry there. I suppose it is. Your photography is very good.

EDUARDO POISL said...

Belissimas fotos !!!

"... E de novo acredito que nada do que é
importante se perde verdadeiramente.
Apenas nos iludimos, julgando ser donos das coisas,
dos instantes e dos outros.
Comigo caminham todos os mortos que amei,
todos os amigos que se afastaram,
todos os dias felizes que se apagaram.
Não perdi nada,
apenas a ilusão de que tudo podia ser meu para sempre."

Miguel Sousa Tavares

Abraços com todo meu carinho.
Uma linda semana com muito amor e carinho.

Oh my lovely shots and I would have been here sooner but it took me a day to get through the comments ;-)

walk2write said...

Fascinating glimpse of everyday life kicked up a notch. Festivals here just don't have the same authentic feeling. Or then again maybe they do. A town nearby will be celebrating its annual Redneck Festival next weekend.
