Two Men in a Crowd

Two Men in a Crowd

The Theyyum Festival at Kotalli near Kannur in Kerala was the highlight of our visit to the area and we spent an evening and most of a second day here photographing the people and the event. The temple was crowded and there were many keen candidates for a portrait.

A policeman wagged a finger at me. “No photographs of women,” he insisted several times, but the women were just as happy as the men to pose for their picture, and I soon lost the policeman in the crowd!

      1. John, you’re welcome. I’m not sure there is an alternative except a fill light and one not on the camera. More to carry. As you said previously, you don’t use a flash.
