Once a year, the spirit of Mardi Gras comes alive in Long Beach, California, in the form of the Bayou Festival. It’s two days of wonderful music and food, and even parades. Colorful beads are everywhere, and I photographed these at one of the vendor stalls. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 14-45mm zoom at 45mm, f/5.6, 1/100 sec., handheld)
