Day 305, Theyyam dancer, originally uploaded by Andrey Dorokhov.

Theyyam (Malayalam: തെയ്യം‍) or Theyyattam or Thira is a popular Hindu ritual form of worship of North Malabar in Kerala state, India, predominant in the Kolathunadu area (consisting of present-day Kasargod, Kannur Districts, Mananthavady Taluk of Wayanad and Vadakara & Koyilandy Taluks of Kozhikode of Kerala state. As a living cult with several thousand-year-old traditions, rituals and customs, it embraces almost all the castes and classes of the Hindu religion in this region. The performers of Theyyam belong to the indigenous tribal community, and have an important position in Theyyam. This is unique, since only in Kerala, do both the upper-caste Brahmins and lower-caste tribals share an important position in a major form of worship. The term Theyyam is a corrupt form of Devam or God. People of these districts consider Theyyam itself as a God and they seek blessings from this Theyyam. A similar custom is followed in the Tulu Nadu region of neighbouring Karnataka known as Bhuta Kola

Day 276, Out of focus, originally uploaded by Andrey Dorokhov.
Actually I was shooting her sister and Ksenia was just passing by and that's why she has got accidentally focused, but I think I like that shot. Decided not to delete it with only her twirl in a focus.

Вообще то я фотографировал ее сестру, а Ксюша проходила мимо и случайно попала в кадр, и так же и фокус получился случайным, на ее завитушке. Но мне как то теперь нравится этот снимок, и я решил его не удалять. :-)

Day 274, Two phones, originally uploaded by Andrey Dorokhov.

I decided to change my mobile right before my birthday, so when my dear wife asked me what I want for my birthday, I have told her that I want a new mobile phone. She asked about a model and my imagination let me down, I told her that I want the same phone she has. So, it could look stupid, but now we have similar phones, but different colors :-)
