It was parade time again this past weekend, and one of my favorite photo ops of the year. The colors and the joy on faces everywhere makes this day an annual favorite. This year the weather was perfect once again and I shot everything with one of my best lenses, an 80-200mm f/2.8 zoom. It is the "fast" nature of any f/2.8 lens when shot close to wide open that yields photos with a crisp clean subject and creamy backgrounds. In photo terms, that background cream is known as bokeh.
You can find the images here and many more of the festivities at my PBase photo site.
