This is the day the we witness all the what the whole country has been building up to for the 3 months prior. The high point is the visual spectacle. As usual I was there and I took a few photos.

The greatest show on earth.
As in previous years I was there, in Port of Spain, photographing the people and the costumes of carnival Monday and Tuesday. The full album is on Flickr but I just though I should share some of the best. So what was there to see on Carnival Monday and Tuesday? Read More

Its Carnival time once again in Trinidad and Tobago and as usual I will be out about taking pictures of the festivities (at least the ones where they allow you to take pictures).

The real Mas begins
Monday was just a primer. Tuesday is the real show. Tuesday is the day when you get to see the full costume which ironically these days somehow translates to less costume.

I do find that in recent years said spectacle is becoming less and less about Mas and portrayal and more and more about being with the in crowd for the street party. None the less there is still much to see.
