My second submission to the Weekly Photo Challenge. This week’s photo challenge is ‘weightless’. I thought about several possibilities but finally decided on some shots i had taken of candy floss.
Whenever i think of candy floss, it is about its fluffiness, lightweight, ready to disappear when you try to press it and how it dissolves outright as soon as you pop it in.
These shots were a result of a cheeky monkey who walked up and snatched my niece’s candy floss at Kasauli. Her wishful hope to enjoy another did not materialize until we saw a candy floss vendor cycling on the Delhi-Chandigarh highway surrounded by wheat fields on both sides. We stopped him and asked him if he could make some. He happily obliged. It was fascinating to watch him make it. As the candy floss was being woven, the smiles of the girls spread like the sugar webs on his little device! after all, not only were they candy floss but they were in their favourite ‘wow pink’ colour!
