Mardi Gras

Best On Black.


Every year, my city plays host to one of the most colourful celebrations on the planet: the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. Preparations began a month in advance, and this was one of the first signs they were underway.

    Thanks, Heidi_girl :-)

    aa_just_thowt: true, the image has been enhanced a bit, but not bad for the "POS" 18-55mm kit lens, hey?
  • Michelle Kerr 8y

    Beautiful vibrant colors, and great reflection of the building. I hope you have a wonderful time.

    Thanks, Doris. It was good, but I missed most of it. Was at a friend's place, reviewing our photos of the day [we went on a steam-hauled train] and guzzling down beer. Still, got into the city and photographed the parade and the crowd for about an hour.

    Good to see so many happy people in public, it's not a common sight in Sydney ;-)

    Too many people slag off the kit lens. I got some great photos with it. All hail the kit lens!!
    Ah this photo is so uplifting.

    So true, Tom! In fact, I didn't buy it when I got the 400D. It's only when I got it with the 20D that I realised how much injustice it has suffered from the mouths of the clueless :-(
