Corner View 'Street Photography'

Last week it was Carnival (Carnaval if you like) here in Eindhoven.

The streets were packed with people in costumes.  The funniest were Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street riding bikes.  Huge heads, bright colours, all furry!  Sadly they were a bit too quick on their bikes to get a photograph.

These pictures give you a Corner View of what it was like on the streets around town last week.  Crazy, fun, loud, musical and very colourful.

    When I was on the street at the market, I was scared to take pictures and so I just snap, snap without focus. I love the purple haired guy. He looks friendly and happy:)

  22. I remember those kind of carnavals from Germany. There's usually lots of drinking involved. Everybody is dancing on the streets and quite a few couples find their beginnings at this time of year. And their ends ;-)
