Photos – San Francisco’s 14th Annual Carnaval Parade in the Chilly Mission District

Well it’s the fourth Sunday in May, so that means just one thing – San Francisco Carnaval. Were you shivering? Check out the local color here, courtesy of Ted Weinstein. And here are some more photos: 

¡Carnaval!

Rei e Rainha do Carnaval 2009? Well they certainly looked the part, anyway.

¡Irmandade! Sisters doing it for themselves:

Capoeira, as seen on Meet the Fockers

I Dream of Jeannie, or 48 Jeannies on 24th Street, or something:

Sadly, these Jeannies weren’t followed by phalanx of Major Nelsons

Mi Chevy y tu Chevy. “SICKT FO” = 1964:

Puertas de tijera – ahora mas que nunca. Will scissors doors work on my heretofore Bland Cruiser? If so, I’ll take four, plus another one on the tailgate – why not?   

You’d think Zorro would have a Nissan Z-car but he makes do with his Celica and some tape.

And There You Have It.

  1. Darn! I missed Carnaval this year. Hopefully I will attend next year. Looks like you had fun shooting the pics. I especially love the pregnant woman. A classic shot! She was pregnant right?

    Thanks David. Everybody likes your colorful 300mm shots. See you out there.

    Thanks Jim,
    The 300mm wasn’t that easy to carry arround to shoot at the Carnaval parade event! but I do like the result of it. The bokeh looks better than the 70-200mm lens. When is your next event are you going to attend? I do like to shoot next to you. Lots to learn from you!

    thanks
