Timely warning. Thanks maxjj. These runs are just kicking off in the UK now. I'll stay away - and have suggested that my family does the same!

I've never heard of these events, other than Holi-festival for Hindu's, but it's a great heads up/warning in case I do ever see one!

you are starting to see more and more of these used at events and although they may lead to amazing shots I can definitely see this being an issue for photographers. I know when I have gotten it on me in the past it is very abrasive and if any moisture at all is present it becomes a real mess. Luckily I'm not into people photography even though I do love mass gatherings of individuals for cultural purposes or any purpose for that matter.

I have even seen smaller versions of these used in nightclubs... now that can be fun... :twisted:
