After watching and snapping last year's carnival, I had decided to read up about taking photos in the dark, but guess what - it didn't happen. And then suddenly the year has gone and its carnival time again!
I wasn't feeling too great on Saturday, but as the procession passes the bottom of our road, I just had to have a mosey down to enjoy the fun.
These photos were all taken with my point and shoot, set on aperture 2.3 (for some strange reason it wouldn't let me set 1.8), and without the aid of any sort of keeping still mechanism. They aren't perfect by any means, but I hope they show the spirit of carnival.
If you would like to see the picture larger please click on it, but be aware this post is photo heavy. The last three were taken from the upstairs bay window at the front of our house. Enjoy.
