Busó Festival


Last year I missed the Busó (pronounce Busho) festival..probably because I wasnt into photography then :p ..so, this is my first photo about Busó , taken last February ..these guys are the Slovenian Busó (pronounce Busho) performers ..Love the smile :)

A little bit about the festival :-
"The Busó festivities is a tradition stemming from a few thousand-year-old nature-praising belief system..a celebration of farewell to Winter, a welcome of Spring, the renewal of nature, birth, and the progeny of cattle. It is partly the promise of love, embrace, lust, growing up, becoming a man, belief in the future, happiness, friendship, and the will to live ."

One of the tricks that other bloggers us is to have a second blog where they put there additional photos. Then place a link in their original post. ParisDailyPhotoMakingOf is a good example.
