This year’s motto of the 23th Carnival der Kulturen in Bielefeld was Atmosfail – for an environmentally sustainable and fair atmosphere. So beside the beautiful costumes – particularity the stilt walkers were really amazing – there were lots of political statements.

Carnival of Cultures 2015
Since 19 years the “Carnival der Kulturen” (carnival of cultures) takes place in Bielefeld. It is always a colorful procession with a lot of creative and beautiful costumes and a good occasion for shooting nice pictures.
This year I took my 70-300 mm lens with me and made a lot of portrait shots.
