Notting Hill Carnival – 29.08.2011

This August bank holiday weekend, I took my first ever trip to the world-famous Notting Hill carnival in London. The Carnival was spread over two days, Sunday the 28th (Children’s Day), and Monday the 29th (Adults’ Day). I was only there for Adults’ Day. The Carnival is nothing short of an explosion of colour, music, dancing, food and alcohol. Literally the entirety of Notting Hill is taken over, with the main parade going round the edges of the area, and the streets within it filled with people selling jerk chicken, pork, patties, goat, alcohol, as well as performers, some playing reggae music, some dub step, rap etc.

The photos were taken with my Fujifilm FinePix S2500HD, not my Canon, and although the composition isn’t perhaps as perfect as I’d normally like, I do believe the pictures convey the organised chaos that is the Carnival.
