Carnival people

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 12 December 2013 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

The dances of the people on the floats are well choreographed and add to the enjoyment, often getting the crowd dancing along

Canon EOS 60D 1/125 second F/9.0 ISO 320 51 mm


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.

Jules from Drayton, United Kingdom

great pov - I bet the bulbs throw out a lot of heat & provide a bit of warmth on the cold nights.

@Jules: The truth is that although they used to really push out some heat which was wonderfully warming on a November night, the carnival gangs are finding it more and more difficult to get ordinary light bulbs and the LED and modern fluorescent type are taking over

Frances from Massachusetts, United States
