Mysore Dasara 2008


Mysore Dasara would not need a special writeup. I wanted to publish these, before they appeared in the Dailies the next morning. But, all I could manage was a draft, and a late publish.

Nice images. Specially liked those illuminated palace images. Taken with long exposures? Just beautiful. Even the image of the last "goodie" Wodeyar :-)
