St. Patrick’s Day Parade at the Gateway 2015

Sure I am hired to photograph events all the time. But sometimes I just show up at an event and I pretend that I am an official photographer. I’ve photographed the annual St Patrick’s Day parade a few times and no one ever suspects that I am not official. I am guessing if your camera is big enough people will assume you’re official.

This year I decided to take my smaller Fuji camera and do some street photographer style photos. It was a lot of fun and I got some great photos. I then added a special effect to give the photos a more old film look to them. Lots of fun for a photographer. There were basset hounds, bicycles, Irish dancers, Friars Club on motorcycles, and more. The parade did feel a little smaller this year. My friend was hoping to join the Gallivan parade entry and apparently they didn’t show up! Bummer.

It was a fun Saturday morning. We may not have a river to dye green like they do in Chicago but there was plenty of people in green.
