Photographer's Note

usualy people doesn't like if someone unknown takes pictures about them. Not so in carnival-time. The Nikon D90 looks kind of professional, so they posed, laughed, were enjoyed...

Carnival in Cologne and surroundings, better say in NRW is above all a festival of fancy dress. There are no limits to imagination: the brighter the better. Carnival costumes don't have to be "elegant", the important thing is to show your good intentions and to feel comfortable. The people wears a costume they can identify with, they like to play the role he presents.

For Carnival on the street, however, costumes must be tailored so that you can wear something warm underneath. The real carnival fan is not put off by the weather! Guests who arrive at the last minute will find masks, costumes and make-up in many stores in the city centre. As a last resort, a simple red paper nose is all you need.
