Behind the Parade 1

Happy St. Patrick's Day !
I made my usual trip in to the Parade to snap some photos.
This year's crop is not great, mainly cos I left it quite late to go in, thinking I would catch people as they were coming away from the Parade.
What I found was that it was difficult to get into the atmosphere, and hence difficult to ask people to pose , or for permission to take their photos.

This pub was well ready!
People were busy, on phones or chatting to their friends, looking lovely in their tricoloured shorts!
taking in the atmosphere and taking photos!
There were lots of face painters around, and after I uploaded the photos, I thought the shop window in the background of this one was very pretty.

Remember my friends from last year, Suas-Education for all? They were busy painting again!

Another donation and another pose!
I think this beard is flying a bit low!

The blurred bit to the right of these 2 green-headed lads is actually a ride going by!
These two were beside a sign for a ride that read "children must be with a responsible adult"...would these qualify as either?
More tomorrow, hope you're all having a great day!


  1. They probably wouldn't qualify but they sure look comfy.

    Looks like the rain disappeared just as ours did today. Fun shots - almost like being there. Oh, and that window is fabulous.

  2. What fun! I love the color! That ride looks like one we have at the fair called the Tilt-a-Whirl and I used to LOVE that thing. Until I had kids- after which I have never been able to ride anything that spins. LOL
