Reader photos: Color is in the air

Those who weren't gearing up for the L.A. Marathon — or drinking their weight in Guinness — found other events to take part in this past weekend: Flickr user Greg Jacobs attended the Festival of Colors in Norwalk with his Olympus OM-D and captured this colorful scene. Otherwise known as Holi, a tradition in India, this festival marks the beginning of spring by throwing colors — here, a mixture of food dyes and cornstarch — into the air.
