Thaipusam 2015 Batu Caves - Shave & Shower
Thaipusam 2015 Batu Caves - Shave & Shower

Happy CNY to you guys who still celebrating it especially "Bai Ti Gong" this Thursday. I still remember I can see a lot of huge fireworks that day. Okie this is the continuation of my Thaipusam 2015 @ Batu Caves photo post and this time I would like to feature moments captured at the riverside. Where you see people taking shower after shaved their head and get blessing from the god before carry a barrel of milk and going up hill to Batu Caves. Photos are captured using Nikon D800 and paired with Nikkor 85mm F1.8 or my #TCFisheye lens for the wide view~

Noticed that I like to take photos of kids whenever I saw cute one. They are just so pure and innocent at this age haha.

I wonder how many people shaved their head that day but I know whenever I saw bald head Indian guy I know they went to Batu Caves for Thaipusam haha.There was a myth that if you shave your head bald your hair will become thicker. Is it true??

Stay tuned for my last post about Thaipusam 2015 in Batu Caves as I have more amazing shots to share with you guys. Hope you manage to find a few favourite photo in this post and let me know =D
Cheers~

So far I kinda like the Nikkor 85mm F1.8 lens as it is good for taking portrait at a distance. Love the bokeh shown at night and you can see it from my previous Thaipusam post.
