Collection of random rants and photos from my life experiences shared to the world.

Rainforest Music World Festival 2010 - Day 2

I know its been a month since the event has ended. My life has been a bit hectic since. Well at least its getting done right ? xD On day two I actually shot less photos. It felt like it, but when compiled into albums the amount was almost the same. 

The day started off for me around 10am. When the village started to come alive with preparation activities. Cleaning up, re-stocking, testing systems and many more. I lazed around a bit, checked photos and by 11 am ventured out to see what was the condition of the concert field. 

These were my findings

Day 1Day 2

As you can see the green was gone. And well, there was no need to ask, after day 3 the place was a total mudpie. Mud was everywhere, that was why the staff / volunteers had to wash the walkways and the surrounding area. 

Day 1Day 2Lets move away from all the mud-ness :D

On the first day I did walk around the village to see what was available but I did not take much of the photos. So on day two I took a short walk and I would like to share a few images.

Tattoo anyone?

Painless

 


How about Henna tattoo ?LKWAround the village where are stops where there are people showing the traditional crafts. Such as embroidery, painting, pottery and many more. I stop by a one or two and then got hungry. 

Yellow noodles?Sample to followProducing the end productI always assumed that the embroidery was done on top of the head. As we can see here it was based on a sample which was put in front of the embroider. But that is a feat on its own because there is so much detail, and she can just duplicate the pattern just by looking at it? Amazing. You can give it a try if you do not believe what an effort it is. ;)

Pretty tooCuteSome creative use of the material, but I bet it will be very expensive, I didn't ask the price. If you actually do give it to kids, all the hard work will be gone as it will be destroyed in a few years. If your buying it, display it somewhere and do not use it as an actual toy. That's my opinion xD

There were quite a number of food stalls at the village. You can always get food and drinks. No worries. Except if it was like 9am.

After that my SB-900 overheated from all the random bursts that I did. =) So I had to stop shooting for a few mins.  And it was already finishing so the next session was up.
