Not a posing shot, not a set up capture, a candid street snap caught during the procession at the opening ceremony of the International Folklore Festival in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria. The cheerful folklore dancers from four continents transferred the main street into carnival mood, with their dance, music, singing and lush, vivid traditional costumes. As I discovered the next day, following the stage performances of the folklore groups, this gal I've snapped in her full allure is a member of the Komenka Ethnic Dance & Music Ensemble from New Orleans. With this costume, depicted on the photo, they were presenting and sharing us the spirit of mardi gras, the carnival held on Shrove Tuesday, one of the symbols of New Orleans.
