Notting Hill Carnival Photos

Notting Hill Carnival is one of those things you must experience once in your lifetime. It’s brilliant to see all of the colourful, vibrant costumes and get caught up in the atmosphere.

Usually though, once is enough, unless you a) live within walking distance b) know someone who lives nearby who will let you use their loo and hang out on their balcony until the crowds disperse or c) are just feeling a bit crazy and don’t mind being packed into the tube and the claustrophobia of crowds similar to those Oxford Street Christmas shoppers but with more chaos and fewer bags.

I skipped it this year, but it is, of course, brilliant for photography and there’s some great photos coming in to the Flickr pool that I want
to share with you!
