Carnival fun – Flickr pic of the day

This photograph was taken on during the recent Twede Nuwe Jaar (second new year) carnival by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member AJAY B2010.

Says Ajay, “I went to the Cape Minstrel Carnival on January 2 in search of a carnival atmosphere, song, dance and colourful photos. The late start of this year's troupe parade through the streets of central Cape Town meant that I had to go and search for photos rather than standing on one spot and waiting for the opportunities to come to me.

“I spotted this child who was clearly part of a minstrel troupe but had just about enough of the excitement for the day. He was almost falling off to sleep, noticed that I was about to photograph him and broke into a most delightful sleepy smile. This proves that many people are generally very responsive to a camera being pointed at them.”

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
