Here is another attempt at time lapse - I am getting seriously addicted to this form of expression.

The Sharad Purnima or Kojagari Purnima or Kumar Purnima is a harvest festival celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu lunar month of Ashvin (September–October). It marks the end of monsoon. There is a traditional celebration of the moon and is also called the 'Kaumudi celebration', Kaumudi meaning moonlight.
At night, goddess Lakshmi is worshiped and night vigil is observed. According to a folk-tale, once a king fell on evil days, and was in great financial straits, but then his queen observed this fast and night vigil, and worshiped the goddess of wealth, Laxmi. Consequently, they were blessed by the goddess and they regained their prosperity.
It is also believed that on this day as moon and the earth are very close to each other, the moon rays have certain healing properties of nourishing the body and the soul.

I haven't been a big fan of night photography so far, however, some photographs like this one make me re-think about my choices. I have been avoiding use of a tripod, mostly due to the inconvenience factor. I think it is time to invest in a tripod and spend some time photographing this city during the night too.
