Carnival Parade in Madrid

Where the traditionally costumed meet giant icons who dance with the macabre, futuristic Geigeresque aliens, prehistoric raptors and gothic dragon riding barbarians.










All photos taken by me on Calle Alcala last night.

those pics are sooo cool. a lot more exciting than what I would have expected. I didn't realise that these things were so full of weirdness.

Err thanks M! But you really ought to leave your initials or else I seem schizophrenic... or vain... making comments to myself... but whatever..

Thanks Sirio.. it was full of weirdness and way more exciting than I was expecting too.. it started out all regular and then at the end all these ork-like barbarians ran out at us bouncing on these freaky metal stilts and it was mad fun. They moved too fast for me to get a clear photo.. shame my camera isn't more better... but i'm saving my pennies for an upgrade.
