Carifiesta Dancers, Montreal

Sorry for the silence – work and a long weekend conspired to divert my attention.  On the plus side, the long weekend was photographically productive (Montreal knows how to cram a visually interesting festival or three into a weekend!), so I have a lot of pictures to share.  This was from Carifiesta, a festival of Caribbean culture culminating in a street parade through the city centre.  I didn’t even know it was on, just happened to wander across the waiting crowds and decided it was worth sticking around to see what happened.  Turned out to be a good decision, the parade was a lot of fun to watch and photograph!

Annnnd, we’re back!  Sorry about the silence – turns out it’s hard to update when broken keyboards and temperamental internet connections conspire against you.  On the plus side, I got to see some pretty impressive cloud formations doing their best impression of an alien fairytale landscape, which made for a nice few hours of plane-based photography.

I’m still getting caught up on the internet, so please bear with me if I don’t get to your blogs for a couple of days.
