my houndsAs so many times, i was upset with the kinetic behaviour of other people taking pictures. Even those in the first line of chairs, stood up and moved about, thereby, 'photo bombing'. Mostly it was people with cheap cameras, and telephones wandering back and forth ruining shots for me. One guy had an art museum badge, and he wandered on the street constantly mingling with his equipment (with microphone) amidst the marchers. I delayed posting this because of my dissatisfaction.
Other people brought their pups too. I saw someone with a boa constrictor, somehow i think that was a mistake.
Lady Justice stopped many times to pose, but i could not get a good angle, and a clear shot. She was one of a handful of people i wanted good fotos of. The girl on the stilts above was another one.
There were several small bands of musicians, but marching past very little could be heard. The origin of this annual parade has roots in the Caribbean. This explains the colorful shirts and short pants.
