It was a very wet day, but despite the rain, the dancers and performers of the Handsworth Carnival kept the spirit of carnival going with nonstop movement, loud music and great enthusiasm.
Using a slow shutter speed and moving the camera in various ways I followed the dancers and musicians as they moved along the street, and I tried to capture the spirit of the carnival in the swirling costumes and shapes. The vivid colors and shapes created semi abstract patterns which I found far more exciting than the more factual images which I had taken at the start of the parade.
