Maco Caribbean Living


Pretty Carnival

One of my Carnival photos has appeared on the Maco Caribbean Magazine website. Ok, so now I am proud again. It seems that I might be mildly famous for one picture in my lifetime and this one is it – fortunately or unfortunately. The picture, which I will now call Pretty Carnival, was used to promote a party at a night club in Germany during the last World Cup. Also, early last year K. Madison Moore asked if I would grant her permission to paint the picture, but I am not sure if she did anything yet.

  1. Matt, I hope to be remembered for my photography and this blog 😉

    Thanks Chennette, but I have many more photos left in me so who knows 🙂

    kim, thank you very much 🙂

    I just put up my first 2008 Carnival album so take a look and let me know what you think.

  2. Wow! I too just looove this pic! Especially since that girl is me! I always see this pic on various websites — and didn’t even know that it made it all the way to Germany and other places for use (no doubt without your permission–believe me, I know that feeling…) Anyway, it’s a lovely pic–one of the best ones of me in my costumes over the years. Thanks for your talent — and for making me look great!

  3. Jeanette, it’s an honor to finally hear from the woman whose pictures are now a permanent part of Trinidad Carnival – I am assuming this is really you, of course. It was a great costume and you made a memorable picture. Glad to hear from you.

  4. Thank you so much for your compliment, not only in your comment, but in the beauty of this pic. Indeed, I am the woman in the costume. 🙂 Just so you know, this costume in which I portrayed Princess of Atlantis for the band Masquerade, won Individual of the Year (It was a repeat performance for me, having won the title the year prior and would go on to win the year after.) My family and I are thoroughly entrenched in Carnival (My Uncles designed and made the costume) and the beauty and colour of Mas. It is an honour for me to now be a permanent part of Trinidad Carnival, as you say, and I hope to continue next year and thereafter. If at all possible, I would love to have a copy of this picture to frame for my memories. Thanks again for an amazing picture.
