Marching on Copacabana

Brass players march on Copacabana to kick off a fiesta. Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4L IS USM lens. Exposure Details: 1/400 seconds @ f11 ISO 320.

The hordes of musicians and dancers continued to stream down the hill under the banner of Paceña, the beer from La Paz. Getting this close for the shot gave me a bit of an ear drubbing, but I think it was worth it. My eardrums have had worse anyway. I love the hands on this guy. You think his hand could ever return to normal function after lugging that instrument around? Or has it become a permanently fixed meaty vice dedicated to music?

And so the November fiesta month shall roll on into December.
