Subject: [Leica] Nathan's PAW 11: Zurich Fasnacht

New Orleans has its Mardi Gras, Rio its carnival. Here in 
German-speaking Switzerland the corresponding event is called Fasnacht 
and is geared more toward children than elsewhere--you are unlikely to 
see topless women on the streets of Zurich (it is anyway too cold this 
time of year).

Most of the smaller towns around Zurich held their Fasnacht parades two 
weekends ago, but the big cities like Zurich or Basel had theirs last 
weekend. I have put a larger selection of Fasnacht pictures from 
Küsnacht (a small town nearby whose main claim to fame is a connection 
with Carl Jung) and Zurich on the Leica Gallery:

But for my PAW I have selected these four images from Zurich. First, one 
of the many marching bands:
(M7, 35mm Summilux, Fuji Provia 400F)

The children put the finishing touches on their faces:
(CL, 40mm Rokkor, Fuji Provia 100F) do the adults:
(M7, 35mm Summilux, Fuji Provia 400F)

Finally, this couple had more important things to than watching the parade:
(M7, 35mm Summilux, Fuji Provia 400F)

The complete PAW index is at:

and comments/critique are welcome and appreciated as always.
