Fête de l’Iris 2009

May 13th, 2009

The annual festival of the city, the “Fête de l’Iris” ran last week-end and fortunately the sun also came! There are animations everywhere between Place Royale and Grand Place… It seemed to me it was more colored this year, or maybe just an illusion?
I couldn’t stay very long but here are some images…

Costumed guys on stilts were circling around...

And well, there was a good ambiance at the Mont des Arts, just below the Place Royale, so I mainly stayed there…
I also stayed a while with the skaters, and I was happy to have a strobe and a 20mm 2,8 with me, which permitted to stay close to the action!
