For this weeks’ challenge I’m giving you a picture of a picture. This shot was taken many years ago on a trip to Toronto. We were there for Caribana (now called the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival). Caribana is a celebration of Caribbean culture that includes all kinds of events highlighting the art, music and food of the West Indies. The main event is the parade; with participants in costume dancing to live steel drum, soca and calypso bands. During the parade the crowd doesn’t just passively watch. We all get to “jump-up” and celebrate.
This photo happens to be one of my Mom’s favorites. I’d like to think she likes it because it’s a picture of her favorite daughter (I’m not boasting; I’m her only daughter), but I know she mostly likes it because it demonstrates her rarely used photography skills. She managed to catch me in midair; jumping for joy and celebrating the good times; back then. Today, I’m still known to jump for joy; just not as high.
Finally, here is a brief musical interlude. Please feel free to jump up; if you feel like it. 🙂
