I’m not going anywhere. It’s just getting to be fun.
Second line season is over until around October when things cool down and rain stops falling every fifteen minutes. There will be a second line in August for Satchmo Fest. Louis Armstrong’s birthday. It’s in Treme. Just about everybody comes out. Multiple brass bands. The hosting social club. A few Mardi Gras Indians. Jazz fans from all over the world. The parade is fairly short. The weather is very, very hot.
This parade. Uptown Swingers. It rains every year somewhere along the parade route. Sometimes, the water pours down sideways. In buckets. It wasn’t quite that bad this year. But, still…
Anyway. I’m glad for the break. I’m not so sure about next season. We’ll see.
In case you are wondering. These pictures were made with one camera body and one lens. A 24mm. Pancake. A little tiny thing. On a bigger looking body. In order to fill the frame you have work very close. You have to become one with the parade. I guess you could say that I did that.
