Cologne Carnival ladies

By maggietear
While standing waiting for our train in Cologne, Germany we had the opportunity to photograph many Carnival- goers, wearing amazing costumes and wigs. These two looked slightly out of place with all the young revelers, but obviously game to join in!

Thanks for looking

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit.

Well done those ladies. But it's easier to be brave in pairs. Grin
In the Pink Maggie, goes to show that you are never to old to have fun. Well potted and captured
