12:30 AM. Official start of carnival. Holy shit, it's puring rain eh? we say. My mates and I are headed to the center to party for a while and have fun. Soaked, full, we get there. Hey, hello, what's up, long time no see, what's up man? We all say while we meet everybody. some I haven't seen in an hour, some I haven't seen in 4 years. Party goes on. Alcohol goes on. Nice and wet we still try to look cool while our hair is all messed up, and our clothes and costumes don't even look half as good. Party goes on.

4AM. I see some Angel Eyes in the distance. Hey dad, thanks, yeah it was AMAZING! Of course I got pretty wet, yeah, but it was so good. Some 15mins later, a glass of water and a warm bed await. TV noise. What's the time... 9? Alright, up. Quick breakfast, and off to prepare the equipment. Tripod? set. Lenses? all 3 set. SD cards? Empty. Batteries charged and both cameras in working order. Let's go.

12PM. Parade starts. Man this is looking good, but let's see if my friend finds me. She better do, I can't see here. We meet and greet, and go a little further up than where my family is. Groups pass by, this is awesome. It's missing that spark that I used to love, but hey, it's coming along amazing. I think i'll blame the recording for it. You just don't enjoy it as much if you're doing it. But that's fine, next year I won't bring anything, I hope. Oh, no, don't leave yet, you have to? damn, see you soon.

3PM. We're waiting for number 36, that's my friend's. They're dressing with a yellow-dark red combo this year which looks very good, but we're leaving to eat in a little, and as they're not even starting to parade yet, I'll go find them. after a while, I find my mate. All good, he says. Hope it goes well. Of course it will, have a great time dude. Headed back and time to eat. These carnivals are amazing. Judge for yourself:

Oh my gosh... The costumes are so pretty :wub: I've always wanted to go to Carnival and hoped I could go sometime in my life because my grandparents live in Portugal and they love that type of stuff. Moneys tight tho smh. But yeah, great pictures! I love how the majority focus on one person. Kinda captures a whole new individual feel of it (the emotion and color and stuff). Very pretty :)

The carnival looks fascinating. I assume it's a cultural carnival? The pictures are awesome and you've done a great job capturing them with the people moving.

Thanks! I won't make you too jealous but I'll just say you're missing on quite a bit :P It's an experience to see it all in the flesh

To be honest it's just a carnival which source so to say is having fun. Religion took somewhat of a 2nd place in it as the parades and parties congregate a lot of people from outside.

Thank Ali :) it was for sure.

Hey Nick! The carnival looks so amazing, I would've loved to have been there to experience it. I love seeing different cultures and the things they celebrate, it seems like a lot of fun, I watched the video...the parade, the dancing, the costumes, the drums...it's amazing, really. The pics are really cool btw. I'm glad you had an awesome time, I bet the carnival's gonna be a goood memory for you:D

That's so cool, great shots! I wish the US could be cultured like our European friends... But no, Buffalo Wild Wings and trucks... :lol:
