Joy of Colors

I took this photograph at Gopinath temple on the occasion of Holi, in Vrindavan, India. Holi is celebrated as a festival of colors all over the country. I still remember, I was standing at one corner watching everyone play Holi and suddenly this little girl all covered up in red comes running to my side and bends down to grab flowers in her hands, then throws them all over her. All this happened within 10 seconds. I just held my camera and took a couple of shots and she was gone.
