It's Carnival 2006

Every year for two days the entire country shuts down for the unofficial holidays of Carnival Monday and Tuesday. Bands of costumed masqueraders parade through the streets of downtown Port of Spain and environs in what has been dubbed the “Greatest Show on Earth”.

For the past four years I have been capturing the sights of Trinidad Carnival and publishing a selection of photography on's sister site,

‘Play yuhself’ is a local phrase that translates loosely into ‘be yourself, enjoy yourself, come what may’. I think it really captures the spirit of revelry and abandon that dominates the Carnival season.

This year there are more than 400 photos on Take a look.
