Circus, black and white and colour

A circus (especially an American one, full or white, blue and red and stars and stripes) evokes colours. Last year (2011) the Vegas came to Durham and I had to try my new Canon EOS 5, my new EF 70-200 f/4L IS, already loaded with Delta 3200.

Then, this year, it has been the time of the Netherlands circus. I shot it with different equipment: the EF lens stayed, mounted on the EOS 1n with Provia 100F, while the Nikon FM2n with 50/1.2 AIS and Neopan 400 took care of the B&W side.

These were the results.
