As Naperville and Chicago area photographers, we’re used to some pretty crazy situations. Stand on a Chicago roof in the freezing rain taking pictures of a hospital under construction? Check. Run up and down the Willis Tower? Been there, done that. Get pelted with color while trying to keep your camera *sort of* clean? Well, why not?

We might still have green paint on us somewhere from this little dude:

And this is where Catherine’s hair turned purple:

But it’s just paint. It comes out in the wash.

What could be more fun on a beautiful spring day than seeing a bunch of strangers spend four hours covering each other in powder and paint? The whole thing ends up being one of the biggest messes you can imagine, but everyone was laughing and having a blast. Happy Holi, everybody!

It’s not too often you see a sight like that. We were glad we didn’t miss it.
