Carnival Smiles and Waves

I have a lot of shots from the Summer that have not been posted online.

This is a summer shot from the Leicester Caribbean Carnival , a great event for street photography.

Everybody in the carnival loves posing for a photo and these young ladies all gave me a big smile and wave when I nodded at them for approval to take a photo.

Perhaps there is a bit too much armpit on show, but the energy and atmosphere of the big street party seems to have been captured in this shot
Seen from this angle -armpit and top arm are almost indescribable! You were quite close to these girls or did you crop it! Full of fun!
