It's that time of the year again

It's the time for the neighborhood feasts in the many Italian neighborhoods in New York. This tradition dating from the old days of fairs, was brought over by Italian immigrants and survives even in this age of instant gratification and communication. Naturally, today what was once a source of entertainment is seen as quaint and even exotic by the new inhabitants of these areas.
Here is a photo taken at a time in the day when magical images are made. Early evening. The colors are super saturated without the benefit of Photoshop. This is the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Brooklyn.
