Parade People


A wave and a smile.
A wave and a smile.

It’s the people.

Whether they are in a marching band, a krewe member riding a float, somebody riding a horse or even the people waving for beads or throws, Mardi Gras parades are about the people. It’s really just that simple.


The pictures. F something and be there. That’s also simple. Oh yeah, if you interact with the folks on the floats, they’ll wave at you. Some of them will even give you beads or some other throw. I never really ask. But, if they hand them to me I always say thank you.

More parades tonight. We’ll see how I do.


  1. I love the woman peeking around the corner in the upper right (my right?) of the large photo.
    It’s what I appreciate about your art…it has layers and interest in all of the spaces.
    Can’t wait to see more!
