Photo Caption: Happy Songkran!
By @tracyleephotos “Songkran, the Thai New Year is well underway right now in Thailand and is known as the biggest water fight in the world with people caring the largest super soakers they can find. .
This little Thai boy is being “blessed”. In the original thai tradition, the captured water poured over Buddhas for cleansing was considered blessed and used to pay respect to the people and bring good fortune in the new year. Typically it’s poured on the shoulder but this tradition has evolved into the all out water fight you see today.
I love capturing life as it happens and I feel this photo I took in 2013 when I was inThailand during Songkran depicts that.
