Artist's Description

I found this in my Archives, its from a Carnaval that takes place in Aalst, Belgium. The Carnaval of Aalst is infamous. EVERYONE dresses in fancy dress, Men dress as woman. during the time of the bourgeousie (i hope i have the spelling correct!) it was only the well off people who would be allowed to attend carnaval, so peasant men would dress in their wives best clothing so they could attend the festivities, and so the tradition has carried on to some extent.

taken with Ricoh Capilio R4, as is.
