2011 Deck – Week 8


Wednesday gone was our Republic Day in Guyana, and the big event was the Mashramani Parade, so I had already decided that I was going to pick one of those photos for this week’s Deck image.

After several days of torrential and continuous rain (that flooded my house) the day was Sunny, very sunny, still clouds on the horizon, and every once in a while, above us, but primarily sunny.  My head now looks like a large cherry on top my shoulders, I am sunburnt.  But hopefully after I upload all the selected images from the day, I’ll think it was worth it  🙂

I chose one that I think represented the exuberance and gaiety, the sheer joy of tramping and mashing down the road that the revellers seem to possess (on and off) through their parade.

 

Mash!

  1. I keep missing this. Every year I decide I am going to go out and every year something comes up that stops me. Having seen the stuff you get every year, I am absolutely going to go out next year (unless something comes up 🙂

  2. beautiful portrait, michael! so much color and contrast, and the expression is priceless. and what dedication to suffer a sunburn in order to get the shot! ; ) do you know the significance of the emblems on his hat?
