JUNKANOO NASSAU BAHAMAS Photographer © John Housser

It was not until the sun started rising that the energy really starts coming out! Junkanoo is a twice annually celebration of the holiday season, once on boxing day, and again here on New Years Day. Teams sponsored by organizations in the community work all year preparing elabourate costumes made out of all sorts of materials, choreographing dance and music, and
mustering spirit, for this intense competition.

This intense sound of cowbells, brass instruments, and every drum imaginable, has inspired a global music genre by the same name, and Junkanoo music can now be heard in many cities, and many festivals. Junkanoo Wikipedia

Prague New Year 2007
FIREWORKS OVER PRAGUE New Year 2007

This panorama was shot from the Metronome (the former place of the giant Stalin Statue) at Letna Park, overlooking Old Town, and beyond that, the rest of Prague. New Year in Prague is typically dominated by a sense of chaos and anarchy, as the "fireworks show" is largely in the hands of the audience itself. Fireworks come out of every window, and often from just in front and behind you, wherever you may be!
