UWI Carnival 2007

I passed by UWI carnival 2k7 was today like the paparazzi I am. I must say that things have changed since I have stopped going up there after my friend stopped working in the computer lab last year. The first thing that caught my eye was the new stop light at the main gate, this was long needed, I don't know why they waited until I left to put it in.
My carnival friend told me she wasn't going but it was supposed to start at 10am.. I did my Jamaican time calculations and figured it would start by 1pm yet still I was early. I stopped by the new Jucy beef for the first time too and as I finished I went around to the Mary Seacole Hall where things normally kick off.

People started to crowd there and these are some of the pictures I snapped:


This lady tried hard to get my attention from across the road so I could get her picture.. I'm glad I did, I absolutely love those shorts on girls, too bad I didn't see any girls actually wearing them though.. lol


These girls were representing the AZ Preston Hall, my old hall. As far as I was concerned this was the best costume, not cause yellow is my favorite color or anything ;)


These girls in the redstripe band were pretty lively in comparison to the digicel band who was dead like dog, of course they aren't seen above cause that would be a waste of space.

Rain started to fall shortly after it started so us spectators started to take shelter where ever we could find.. the girls under my bush were dancing up a storm.


The rain started to come down so hard that for the sake of my camera I sheltered by the Philip Sherlock Centre. These girls here on the left gave me some serious screw face after I asked them for a picture to remember the moment, they asked me what I wanted it for, I said personal collection.. oops I forgot about the blog. They started to smile after a little bit of encouragement from me though, I hope they don't mind.

Adrian said...

@jim screechy: whats this? a shameless plug to your site in my comments? I'm not going to hate though so i'll let you jim screechy some visits from my site :p

owen said...

you've got to give me some tips at encouraging people to take pictures cause most jamaicans well dawk

j said...

The yellow and black was seacole not preston though. And the girls in the yellow weren't representing a specific hall. Rex did lock it down still!

Kingston Girl said...

Have to say that most of them look really miserable - eithr the camera scared them or they haven't got the point of carnival - it's not to look cool and miserable, it's to have fun!

These pics are making me SERIOUSLY consider an impromptu trip down carnival weekend. Matter of fact, I'm looking into tix now.

I wonder if Jim Screechy is just trolling the web and writing the same message on everyone's blog. My delete finger is reeeeally itchy.

Adrian said...

@owen: dunno.. the ones I got to smile started after I asked. I think the ones with the serious screw face were just laughing inside at me coz I was pointing at my face and showing them how to smile after they didn't fulfill my first request.

@KG: the camera shy ones looked plesant to me as they ran away, I guess these people hadn't gotten in the mood yet cause it was early.

@simple enigma: Jamaica carnival? thats a first.. I know more people who go to trinidad carnival than people who drive down the road to Jamaica carnival and you want to take a plane here for it?

Jim Screechy said...

Wished there were more pics of hotties.

Adrian said...

lol jim. I got lots more on the camera.. some fine ass shots that will make you drool.. pun intended :D

I'm not sure why I didn't use those choice shots on the blog though, I guess I am decent after all :p

Jdid said...

taylor2nd said...

Adrian said...

Dauqre said...

some of those girls were too skinny to be all naked like that

Stunner said...

Great shots Adrian! I plan to be at the Carnival road march with my camera! We need fi link, I am planning to get some fake Press IDs to get closer to the action!

Adrian said...

lol fake press IDs? my cheap camera wouldn't fool a soul :p

The plan sounds fun.. something turns me off of Jamaica Carnival though, year before last they passed infront of my old apartment complex and I didn't even go out to look :(
