pasadena doo dah parade, 2005

i just ate a toad

there’s 69 pictures in my set of photos from the doo dah parade, culled from the 287 pictures i shot.

i ended up shooting everything with my new zoom lens, which was a lot of fun. it was a little frustrating having to shoot around the heads of the people in front of me, and the cameraman from channel 7 was really annoying at the beginning of the parade (but he eventually moved elsewhere and stopped getting in my shots).

the shot above is my favorite, but i’m also happy i was able to capture a fire breather in the act, this creepy clown, the briquette girls, the raelian ufo, this crazy giant-wheeled bicycle contraption, and this juggler with the humboldt state university marching lumberjacks.

next year, i’ll have to remember sunblock (ouch), and get there a little earlier to stake out a better position. or bring a step ladder, and just stand up behind the crowd.
