Painted Ladies

.
Color Run 9

By the end of the Color Run your skin tone depended in how much you reveled in the bombardment of colored powder. These young ladies had no inhibitions about it. They were pressed up against a rail in front of a stage at the end of the course. Runners were being pressed onstage by the MC for a dance contest with separate male and female divisions. The audience apparently had strong opinions.

They looked rather crazy. A lot of passion through their facial expression

Just love these two photos - you seem very close and have really captured the exhuberance and energy of the participants.

Fantastic! This reminds me of the Holi Festival in India and surrounding countries.
