Lord Mayors Pageant

This years parade, now rebranded as a pageant, turned out to be pretty good. It was cold, wet, raining, grey dull flat skies and I feared for the worst. But it was actually a good show. I went early this year to get some candids before the event started which turned out to be quite productive. I’ll post those during the week. My favourite group in the parade are of course the Samba Dancers. They’re just so full of life and colour. I really didn’t expect to see them this year given the weather. Would you dance around town for nearly 2 hours in hot pants and a bra in the rain?

    Hey, who told you?

  2. Her hairy chest and stomach… I’ve noticed this is a hdr/tone mapping bug. Can this not be avoided? I’m sure she’d be horrified to see this… I’ve noticed this effect on some of Zak’s work…


    otherwise excellent stuff Pete

  3. But its not a HDR. If it was I’d have put it in the HDR category. Not everything I do is HDR 🙂 She’s wearing glitter or something.

    Great pic Pete, I watched the show too and was very surprised how it went considering the weather.

  5. Just a great capture, Pete! For real.

    For awhile now you’ve influenced me on taking my wide angle lens and getting in real close. Usually works better than telephoto from far away like most people go about it.

    And always the best post processing from you too.
