An "old" photo taken in February during the Carnaval de Paris : "Promenade du Boeuf Gras, l'Arche de Noé".
The crowd is such that at Carnival in Paris, late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, it stops the movement of vehicles on the Grands Boulevards on Shrove Tuesday and Thursday from mid-Lent.
After 45 years of oblivion, the initiative for the revival of Carnival of Paris is taken by Basil Pachkoff in 1993. He resurrects the procession from the Promenade du Boeuf Gras in 1998 and the Queens laundresses Mid-Lent in 2009.

Lullaby, I don't know why the song of The Cure came to my mind and the lyrics could fit the photo with a lot of imagination :-)

I like this and I'm surprise nobody else has stopped by to critique it. Firstly the dof is perfect for bringing into prominence the girl and her pretty and colourful wings.In the near distance we see a passer by whose importance is matched by the dof.A fun moment in time captured.That's what I like about street photographer, the capturing of a fleeting moment.
