Happy Diwali

Diwali is India’s biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects you from spiritual darkness. This festival is as important to Hindus as the Christmas holiday for Christians.

As much I wished to be India for this celebration, I went to an outdoor event here in California, where all Indians came together to celebrate in all it’s colors and happiness

Just being there to capture some moments

The vibrant colors of Indian fabrics

Indian sweets and other moods

May the country of India, I carry in my heart , receive the inside light all the times and may the future look bright in their souls.

In my photography work I thrive to capture the soul of the moment. I let my images speak the language of stillness and vibration, with that I leave my audience to find their own reflections and emotions. My approach in my work is to lead other's to their own imagination and freedom of dreams. I invite you to visit my web site www.corneliaweber-photography.com

    Gorgeous images Cornelia. It seems much of India’s colorful culture was present in California even if only for a short time.
