Boston’s Caribbean Carnival 2014

We nearly missed it, but today was the Caribbean Carnival festival in Boston. We missed the morning festivities (at which two young women were shot and one died), and instead, attended the daylight event, with heavy police presence. As always, we enjoyed ourselves, but this year, we found ourselves in an odd location; both blocked from taking photos by support staff, and in a sun/shade area, in which it was difficult to get the camera settings to be appropriate for what it was seeing. Here are some of my favorites of both participants and observers of today’s parade.
