Liverpool city centre carnival

This was such a great thing to see. I’ve seen the Brouhaha parade many times and they always have a hint of a carnival feel to it, but Liverpool has needed a proper carnival and we got one. Some of the people I had already seen at the Brouhaha parade earlier and they were still dancing. Crowds lined the streets from Hardman St through Bold St to Concert Sq to Duke St and China Town. People were dancing, singing, and generally getting into the carnival mood. I’m not one to use flash as I prefer natural light, but I figured with it being after sunset I probably would need to take it. I’m glad I did. Though at 10mm I’m fairly sure I blinded at least half the parade. The carnival was setup by Liverpool Samba School.

    Hello Pete,
    You took a couple of perfect shots of me on Liverpool carnival 2008 and of me and Paula(black girl in a turquoise costume,photo at the chinese arch), we both would like to make a canvas of those pics,or just a big frame or something for the wall,
    Obviously i need to ask you if we can have it,or how much is it.
    I do not mind having ur name on it at all on the web,email size pics,but for the frame one then just the original without it.
    Is this all possible?
    Also will u be around at this 17th july for the carnival?
    thanks!
