The Doll Festival 4

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 29 October 2019 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

Another view here. An artificial waterfall had been created here and also a small Kerala village with a typical Kerala home. Too many white wires crisscrossing the steps and over the dolls to provide serial lights, which I thought robbed the dolls of all the beauty.

I really like to see closeups of them...
I am curious to know who is on the photo on the wall.

There is a tendency towards surrealism here I think. :) I like the palm trees

29 Oct 2019 10:55am

@grouser: Aw!! Those are made of plastic !

The lights probably look nice at night.

29 Oct 2019 6:45pm

@Steve Rice: They look good but not very aesthetic !

tataray from Charentes-Poitou, France

Belle composition. Dommage pour les lumières.

Good perspective.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

I agree with your observation about the wires - good intentions but less than quality implementation. Perhaps next year the craftsman can work to conceal some of them.

30 Oct 2019 12:10am

@Harry: Happy you agree! Yes..concealed wires are better ! Or even, placed along the edge of the steps!!

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

It is all very colorful. It would be nice to have steps with holes cut out so that the wires could fit through and be hidden underneath.

@Elaine Hancock: That is an idea Elaine !
