Trinidad Carnival 2009 Part Deux

Hey, folks… here’s the second part of my 2009 Carnival picture collection.  Like I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I wasn’t out for very long on Carnival Tuesday, and for a short time I had the bad luck of being caught in a bad position when a great band was making its way across the stage… I was facing the sun.

Anyway, I didn’t let that deter me from the mission at hand… which was to capture a little piece of the bacchanal that is Carnival to share with you.

The bulk of the pix are from the band Legends, led by Big Mike and his partner Juliette.  The rest are from Trevor Wallace.

Most of these were taken on Ariapita Avenue in Port of Spain, close to the NCC Judging point at Adam Smith Square.

Peace and Rice,

Divali 2008 Gallery

October 29, 2008

Here are some of the pix I took during Divali festivities yesterday. I took over 100 pix, but these are some of the best. I didn’t use flash at all except for a few pics, and relied on the lighting from the deyas small oil lamps and the overhead street lamps.

I first went to Ethel Street in St James, and had to walk from 3 streets away because I couldn’t get a closer parking spot. There were a lot of people there, from all walks of Trinidadian life, who came to enjoy the sights and sounds of the celebrations.

Then I went to Adam Smith Square in Woodbrook, where the celebrations were a bit muted, and not as intricate. After walking around for about 5 minutes, I opted to leave.

It was magical. Enjoy the pictures.

Peace and Rice,
