22 Jan 2008 3:23pm
@Japanalia: Thanks, Gabriela. That old wall is a real hit and those hats are spectacular.
Nice composition : the contrast between musicians uniforms and the wall color. And their glances towards people on the left side, with the blank space on the right. Well done.

How festive! The mix of colors and hint of "what now?"from the band lends to the ambience, nice catch!
@Photographs by M.E.: A good assessment. Thanks, M.E.
