Junkanoo is a form of parading that has been closely associated with Christmas season celebrations. Junkanoo parades are highly spirited performances, involving not only costuming but dance-like body movement and music. The standard instruments include hand-made goatskin “goombay” and bass drums, tom-toms (derived from trap sets), cowbells, small one-note horns, whistles and, more recently, trumpets, trombones and sousaphones.
Traditional Junkanoo costumes consist of pants, shirts and hats that are often decorated with strips of crepe paper that had been cut into fringe. During the 1980s the style of costumes in Nassau began to change, with the incorporation of elaborate skirts and shoulder-pieces fashioned from cardboard. These pieces are decorated with fringed crepe paper and worn over the traditional pants and shirts.
This collage contains four photos from a Junkanoo style parade around the Lazy River / Rapids at Atlantis Paradise Island. Since I was planning to spend the afternoon in the water, I had only brought my waterproof camera, a Polaroid iF045 at the time. When I heard the music, I grabbed the only camera I had on me.
Junkanoo Noel sezonu kutlamaları ile yakından ilişkili olan bir gösteriş şeklidir. Junkanoo geçitleri, sadece kostüm değil, hem de dans gibi vücut hareketleriyle ve müzik içeren, yüksek ruhlu performanslardır. Standart enstrümanları el yapımı keçi derisi "goombay" ve bas davul, tamtamlar (tuzak setlerinden türetilmiş), inek çanları, küçük tek notalı korna, düdük ve daha yakınlarda, trompet, trombon ve susafonları içerir.
Geleneksel Junkanoo kostümleri genellikle saçak olarak kesilmiş krep kağıt şeritlerle süslü pantolon, gömlek ve şapkalardan oluşur. 1980'lerde Nassau’da kostüm tarzı kartondan yapılmış özenli etek ve omuz parçalarının birleşmesiyle birlikte değişmeye başladı. Bu parçalar saçaklı krep kağıt ile dekore edilmiştir ve geleneksel pantolon ve gömlek üzerine giyilir.
Bu kolaj Atlantis Paradise (Cennet) Adası’nda Tembel Nehir / Hızlı Akıntılar etrafında Junkanoo tarzı geçitten dört fotoğraf içerir. Ben bütün öğleden sonramı su içinde harcamayı planladığımdan, sadece su geçirmez fotoğraf makinemi, o zamanda bir Polaroid iF045’i getirmiştim. Müziği duyduğumda, yanımda olan tek fotoğraf makinesini yakaladım.

such an eye catching and cheerful composition, colourful, vibrant and intriguing. I like the well considered and balanced way in which the four pictures are laid out. Countless details mingle and the colours are exalted by a very strong and agreeable light. Through the fascinating swirl of colours we grasp the atmosphere of the Junkanoo too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Never heard of junkanoo before and thks for sharing. Seeing a blissfully happy moment like this make me feel good too, a nice cheery feeling to the festive shots on a bright day and hard to choose as all are indeed excellently presented. It's full of vibrancy and red does stand out so well on each, and bags of detail full of energy and movement. A combination of picture with strong impact well so smartly put together to make this a fascinating montage.
P/S with regards to your comments on my last upload; just for your infor, all pictures in my gallery are on solo effort, alone, even at far flung Central Asia, except NYC and Tunisia. Holiday and serious photo shoot dont merge together for me. Thus I can managed my disciplined time with total freedom, sometimes I can leave my GH very early in morning before daybreak on my rental motorbike just to arrive at my target destn on time. that's my photo life just to share bit of my experiences. On the bitter sides, i was ever detained by Vietnam security for almost 12 hours interrogation plus 100 percent body check for taking pictures near sensitive Cambodian border, and earlier to that was detained by the Junta Military Security in Burma for shooting sensitive Rangoon General Hospital. Just to sum up and share my joy of shooting alone,,, thks for your interest once again. Have a great day

even though you only had a Polaroid camera to see photos from the very funny, the costumes are fun and colorful. This is something I want to see them live again!
