Miami Broward Carnival is Fete central

by Weldon Ryan

As always, Miami Mas bands brought it!  The driving energy of Fete Central was in full effect.  Through the heat and humidity of Miami's october extremes all of the Mas Players partied to the max enjoying what Miami carnival is best known for.   I must say that the Mas Bands took care as of their players as best as they could with food, drink and the right party atmosphere to keep the party going even through the delay of Caribbean time.  Media had it much harder this year with a later than usual start of the Carnival Parade.  The heat limited my creative effort to a conservative effort and formulating plans for the shoot was hampered.  But I came away with great images of these beautiful costumes and the spirit of MIami filtrating through my lense.  There are key images that will be translated to canvas as soon as I recoup from this fete.  Digital Downloads of imahesAs always, Miami Mas bands brought it!  The driving energy of Fete Central was in full effect.  Through the heat and humidity of Miami's october extremes all of the Mas Players partied to the max enjoying what Miami carnival is best known for.   I must say that the Mas Bands took care as of their players as best as they could with food, drink and the right party atmosphere to keep the party going even through the delay of Caribbean time.  Media had it much harder this year with a later than usual start of the Carnival Parade.  The heat limited my creative effort to a conservative effort and formulating plans for the shoot was hampered.  But I came away with great images of these beautiful costumes and the spirit of MIami filtrating through my lense.  There are key images that will be translated to canvas as soon as I recoup from this fete. https://Weldonryancarnivalpix.shootproof.com/MiamiCarnival2017
