Not too far from Philly
you should be able to figure it out...
Shot a bunch at the Philly St. Patricks Parade yesterday. A lof of shots of kids and adults, but the kids, for the most part, are the keepers.

The full set is at:

In the first one, the big hair on top is fake anyway, so I lopped it off - consciously or subconsciously...

This story was overwhelmed by color in the color version and there IS no story in B&W, so my wife suggested using the selective color more overtly than I had been. Let me know what you think...

Well done, Ray!! Your 4th and 5th are my immediate favorites. That one with the little dog checking out those Ugg boots is my ultimate favorite, however.:biggrin: But the leprechaun watching for the train is a close second.:wink:
