Scenes from the 2011 Mission District Carnaval parade (IMG_7037a)
Each Memorial Day weekend there is a great Carnaval Parade in San Francisco's Mission District. This is an awesome event - full of great outfits, costumes, dancers, bands, and miscellaneous performers. Really great to watch. I was hoping for a nice cloudy overcast day (this is San Francisco so the odds were good) but it was a bright sunny day - so it created quite a challenging environment with a lot of sun/shade contrast. In spite of that I still like the way the shots turned out and can't wait to go back.
These photos are from the Carnaval in May 2011.
