Happy Diwali! (I know, right now, its the next day :-P)

Wish you a very Happy Diwali- the festival of lights!

This photo is not altered digitally in any way except for the border and the footer. The light source points are from sparks falling off a "flower pot" cracker. The lamp shapes are from a piece of cardboard with an opening which was cut in the shape of a lamp and which was held in front of the lens. Thanks to my Sis Yaamini for the idea of having a lamp as the shape and even cutting it out for me, I had initially planned for stars and had tried it out some months back, but this is way more better and suits the festive season!
