Gothic Festival 2016


This is the second time that I happen to be in Leipzig during the Gothic Festival, always a feast for the eyes. Kudos to all participants for their tremendous efforts, as the costumes are really stunning. Many people were taking photos like mad, some times flocking in front of couples or groups as if it was a photo call. I decided to do it in a slightly different way, so I entered a McPaper and bought a set of cards. Besides asking for permission to take a photo, I asked if they would like to have a copy. A few took me on my offer and wrote their e-mails on a card for me to send a link with the photos, which I have already done. I hope they like them. They put a lot of effort on their appearance, so it felt appropriate to give something back in return.

The weather could have been definitely better, with scattered rain throughout the weekend and some impressive fast moving clouds. But of course, this is a gothic festical, you don´t get to choose the weather, just your clothing...
