      Let's hear it for tolerance! I like the way you have given the image an old feel to it, suggesting the long tradition of the festival. Thanks for sharing. :-)

      fraaie sepia tussen al dat "kleur geweld " :))

      mooie tonen, fraaie bocht in de straat, verlevendigt het geheel, voor zover nodig met deze speelse voorgrond !
