Day 13, 14 & 15/365…

If you’ve been following my 365 project, you’d have realised that I didn’t post anything on Saturday, Sunday or Monday (its early Tuesday morning as I type this).

Well, its Carnival time… and I went to my first Carnival fête: St Mary’s College All-Inclusive (read an interesting review of the 2008 edition of the fete here).  An “all-inclusive fête” is a Carnival fete where everything you need is included in the price.  You get as much as you can eat and as much as you can drink, as long as stocks last.  The fêtes usually go strong for as much as 10 hours… some start as early as 4pm… and they go ’til after midnight in some cases.  St Mary’s is my alma mater, and I usually attend the fete.

In lieu of my lack of photos, here’s a video I recorded of a performance at the fete: Kes the Band featuring Nadia Batson who sings with them as their female lead, although she’s an artiste separate and apart from the band.

Enjoy.

Day 12/365: Kaiso, Kaiso!



Calypso, originally uploaded by boboleechron.

I love making mistakes like these. I think they look so cool.

I was bumped on the elbow when I took this picture of a calypsonian performing at a calyspo show. He was dressed up as a magistrate and was swinging his gavel as he sang his composition.

“Kaiso! Kaiso!” is a phrase of encouragement, akin to “Bravo! Bravo!”

Kaiso is another name for calypso, the indigenous music created and loved by Trinbagonians & Caribbean people.

My office pets – fish “George” (orange-red) and “Weezy” (grey/black) – swim in their bowl that’s got a chip up top.

Feeding time…

Day 10/365: Lights, Camera….



Day 10/365: Lights, Camera…., originally uploaded by boboleechron.

Our National Stadium is in the background.

I had some issues with my car, which caused me to get home pretty late yesterday. I used iPhoto to do the most basic of fade effects.

Day 9/365: Personal Jesus

Personal Jesus, originally uploaded by boboleechron.

I wear a ring rosary on the middle finger of my right hand. Its the only finger that’s “just right” in terms of the ring’s fit.

Taking a picture of it was awkward, as I’m right-handed. I stuck it on a marker cover and took some shots. Stuck it on my left thumb and did the same. Then, I took a series of shots with it on my right hand and choose the best one of each lot.

Operating the camera with my left hand was a task.

Tripod for sure next time…

(You can see the rest of the set here… Only 3 pix though.)
