Dancing with wolves.

Dancing with wolves.

Madurai - Allanganallur

Taming the bull, to stay on you must follow the the high jumping up of the bull.

Two young man died here in Alanganallur as they were picked up by the horns of the bull.

In origine this festival was orginized to show the courage of young farmers to be chosen by young girls as their future husband.

I describe the atmosphere of the festival with this photo from 1994, enjoy!

A carefully thought-out two overlayered Raw-editions.

Nice editing of what must have been a great photo to start with.
Phil Douglis12-Apr-2005 21:26
Certainly an excellent example of time made incongruous. I like the way you separate the subject from the background with a dust-like veil.
