If Ya Got It, Flaunt It

Mardi Gras Parade 2013 7

Carnival, in all its manifestations, has a distinctly erotic side. They say it's much more flagrant in Rio and that attitude is never far from Bourbon Street. But it's a little colder here and, you know, it's the Midwest. Still, the revelers must express themselves. 

The set of these on Flickr is up to 32 pix. More to be edited as time permits. Looks like a very busy week here but then by the end -pppfffftt - all the pressure will be out of the balloon.

Brilliant series of photos here Bob. The humour in the second shot is hilarious.

Great crowd shots, Bob.

I can just see uptight holier than thou prudes tut-tutting.

When they're not too busy peeking through their fingers over their eyes, that is.

I have never been to a Mardi Gras. It must be a fabulous place to be with a camera. Some nice portraits here.
