Surbiton girls

Last week I went to Surbiton to take some pics of these two gorgeous sisters. What a lovely sunny day we had. Here are my favourites photos of the day:

 

Afrocaribe

Afrocaribe is a dance group that has taken part in Colombia’s largest annual celebration – The Carnival of Barranquilla – since 1995 and has around 180 members. After months of preparation the musicians and dancers of Afrocaribe, some as young as 4 years old, come out to show their passion and talent throughout the 4 days of festivities.

 

I was lucky enough to get close to them during makeup and follow them on one of their parades. It was great to share in the excitement of getting ready and really have to admire them for keeping going in searing midday temperatures of 40ºC wearing costumes that can be very heavy.

 

So far they’ve won 12 prizes at the event that is second only to the Rio Carnival in terms of size and really stood out from the rest of the groups in my (totally unbiased) opinion! :)  Check out the full gallery here
