Having seen posters and banners advertising the Chobham Carnival I thought I would pop down to see what all the fuss was about. The event took place on the 7th of May and the weather was appalling so handling exposure was a little bit tough. I wanted to capture some candid style portrait shots and also some shots that really captured the event.
Chobham carnival has been going since 1988 and has hosted a variety of events including red devils parachute jump, camel racing, human canonballs and many more. The carnival goes from one end of Chobham to the other, and they close off the high street for the day. As well as the street carnival there are also plenty of stalls to walk around, well worth a visit for the 2013 calendar.
