Miragem de Carnaval

This is the staging area of the Sambodromo in Sampa. The big day of the carnival parade.
Displayed here are two cheerful Mancha Verde members, getting ready to perform on the Avenue. A very successful performance: Mancha Verde won the first prize in its category.

Nothing more to say really, about this picture. It speaks for it self and for me kind of plugs you straight into the fun and magic of the carnival phenomenon :-).

A pic made during a Mancha Verde rehearsal is here
Another Sambadromo pic is here

”Miragam de carnaval” is a Caetano Veloso song from the soundtrack of “Tieta do Agreste” (1997) starring Sonia Braga

PCS2 tech: slightly cropped, altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, ran Noiseware, USM-ed , added a frame and saved for the web.
