    All on the Leica M9P and 50mm 2.8 Elmar M.

    The last time I had the opportunity to photograph the procession was back in 2011. The photos from that occasion may be seen here: https://www.photographerslounge.org/showthread.php?t=2112

    No, we do not have Carnaval as such. The closest thing would be the San Sebastian Fete, which is a four-day celebration held in Old San Juan every year on the third weekend of January.

    Thanks ReD!
