all the fun of carnival

the public fun in Edinburgh continues with a free carnival in the centre of town (roads closed, buses diverted) and plenty of music and dance bands.  I took the same photo approach that I did with the Jazz and focussed on capturing some details rather than trying to photograph whole groups when I could rarely see them through the crowds anyway.

I focussed on feet a lot because of the dancers and also I was noticing some nifty footwear. And of course there were gorgeous big headgear too.

I like the overall riot of colour and movement with nice details when you look at each piece close up.

Hope you all have some carnival in your life this week.

Hi Helena. I have enjoyed catching up with what you have been doing while I've been away. Love that idea of a history of my digital self..that's a great one to think about. I found a couple of nice look up, look downs on holiday..it's a great way to approach taking photos on holiday too!

Super collection, beautifully displayed. And a great reminder that snippets tell a story as much as a big picture :).
