Photographer's Note

Another shot from Singapore's Thaipusam festival, where devotees carry milk or participate in mortification of the flesh to commemorate the birth of Lord Murugan's birth (Wikipedia)

I positioned myself at the end of the procession outside the temple where worshippers would have all their accoutrements removed in a very careful and slow process.

It was dim in that tent and using the long slow 75-300 lens it was a bugger to get any decent shutter speeeds
