Penang Thaipusam 2010

This was the second Penang Thaipusam which I took part, but unfortunately I miss out the Kavadi session which already done on yesterday due to my work. So today we gonna try something new, this time we went to Lorong Kulit, this is the place where the devotees prepare them self by piercing the skin, tongue or cheeks with vel skewers. Although this is a Hindu festival, but we also can see some chinese, and america taking part in this festival. The place is crowed with photographers around the world, some are from china, taiwan, australia etc.  So is a challenging shooting for me, is hard to get a decent angle under this circumstances, I always got block by the other, make this shooting not really fun for me. We didn't follow the devotees to Nattukottai Chettiar Temple along Jalan Waterfall because is quite exhausting to shoot for the whole morning!
