Burnham-on-Sea Carnival 11

Posted by

Sometimes it doesn't go to plan. Unfortunately the generator powering the lights and music on Britannic Carnival Club's cart failed, but the show must go on, and all the gang members on the cart carried on in the parade in the hope they could get it all going again

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Bad luck as it looks to be a fantastic cart. Improvisation can only go so far.

Such a shame, but it gives us a different way to view the craftsmanship of their handiwork.

Poor guys. I am sure they were disappointed. I am sure the crowd was still enthusiastic!
