Posted in response to the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.  This week’s theme ‘Dance’

I’ve never witnessed anything so colourful, noisy, and joyful as the Trinidad Carnival.  The parade of dancers, each troupe in different coloured costumes, went on all day.  A senses overload which simply cannot be captured in mere photographs, but I gave it a go. Oh, and of course, these were taken whilst I was having the odd rum or two and ‘wining’ myself. Just to be clear.. wining is a Carribean dance (basically ‘winding’ your hips), I wasn’t drinking wine on top of the rum, let’s face it, I wouldn’t have been able to stand up, let alone dance, if I’d been doing that! 😉

Fab Friday

I was trying to think of a little bit of fabulousness to share with you today, and I remembered these photos that I took at the Trinidad carnival a few years back.  I admit, they aren’t the greatest photos in the world, but the colour and costumes are pretty darn fab.  I wish I could share the joy, noise, and chaos with you too, it was happily infectious and we had a fantastic win’in’ (fuelled by rum ;-)) day! Happy Fabulous Friday to you!
