This are a handful of the many colourful street dancers that were in La Paz. The festive atmosphere was elevated by the fact that participants were of all ages, sizes and abilities.

During Carneval I had a bus ride from Lago titicaca to La Paz(the most beautiful name for a city!)and the bus had to stop so many times because of these parades and I loved it.
A great colorful shot,full of joy and action.

This is a very colourful and attractive picture with a strong foreground. It's a fine composition where the participants have positioned themselves along diagonals. It's very interesting and a good contribution to TE.

This shot from La Paz reminded of the altitude that the inhabitants have lived in all their lives that makes them barrel chested. The great soccer teams of Brazil hated to play at the rarefied atmosphere of 13,000 feet; and Bolivian players could not survive running around at sea level, lest they have fluid buildup in their lungs.
I'm flattered that you downloaded my talk at PICMET'12. Can you give me the link.
But I am especially happy to hear about your simultaneous interest in mathematics and art.

A full of action shot and a very inviting too from this street fest full of stinging vibrant colors influencing viewers' mind to venture deeper into this image. I love the total local flavor, a very good technique, nice shooting angle and close enough to highlight the participants' full details, a picture with good dynamism. They smoothly lead the eyes into the shot with good eye connection as well. Another great festive shot, TFS

Great brightness and incredibly vivid colors, Kevin - you really captured the mood of the dancers well, with varied expressions and movement despite the unanimity of dress. Very nice shot.

I found a folklorical festival in potosi when I was in bolivia, unfortunately my camera was weak and the light was poor in that moment.
very nice this view, each element is well positioned, what is rare, and I liked the sense of joy and movement here. TFS.
