Although Malta is a small island, Carnival is very popular with us locals. The floats are beutifuly made and the costumes are equally impressive.
These are just a handful of photographs of Carnival held in Valletta last few days. Unfortunately it rained ice most of the time so i could not shoot more. My Polaroid Land Pack seams to be too fragile to with stand the beating. I have shots with my Holga but those still have to be developed.
Carnival is held in Malta’s capital city of Valletta and the next door neighbors Floriana. Quite a small event held over 4 days but the floats are beautifully made, from metal, wood and paper. Even costumes are beautifully made, with attention to details.
Building these floats typically starts a month after carnival is over. I spent a whole day around these floats, chatting with people and shooting. Its a good laugh and am looking forward for next year!
