On the edges.
Y’all know that I like to nibble around the edges of an event. Especially second line parades. I think that’s where some of the best pictures are found. The moments are different. They aren’t necessarily the “decisive moments.” They are just little slices.
For this particular second line — Lady Jetsetters — working this way was a good idea. The parade, the first line itself, was made up of five people plus the brass band. A little, tiny parade. But, the band was the Stooges. That’s enough right there. Yes, eventually other people joined them at stops along the way. But, I dropped out by then. Remember, I was fighting something like a cold.
You know how I took these pictures. I like to work close. Engage my subjects. Oh, and one more thing. Pay attention to the tuba picture. Find the photographer. Twice. This picture is my idea of a selfie.
