NOVEMBER 2007: Funny or not
Another picture of the Zumbi Parade in Belo Horizonte. On a sunny Saturday in November. A long folkloric parade with many percussionists. And with dancers and flag-bearers. The picture shows a dancer and a flag-bearer. At the moment of the photo, the dancer suddenly burst in laughs. She must have seen, heard or told something very funny. In contrast, the flag-bearer, with her dreamy eyes, clearly doesn’t share the funny moment of her colleague. She appears to react in a sense of: “You can be funny about thát??” Or in a sense of “If you can be funny about thát…”, feeling a bit annoyed. Or in a non-understanding way: “Why can you be funny about thát?”. I have no clear idea what the flag-bearer was thinking at that peculiar moment. But that moment was worth a picture.
