Balloons-O-Fire

.
As noted here before, the best place to get parade pictures IMHO is in the staging area before the march begins. People are standing still, there are no waving arms and hands in front of your lens (I got a lot of that Sunday) and people are ready to pose. This bunch was out there among a lot of people who were really out there.

And by the way, greetings from Toronto. This is just a quick snap taken from the King Street trolley on our way back to the hotel from dinner last night.

Out There and Wayyyy Out There. Now that's something to see. Are those two WEARING those balloons. I could make a comment here but in the interest of your family friendly blog, I'll pass! :)

Hope it's cooler in Toronto ! Have fun.

A quick snap maybe, but pretty cool. Really nice jumble of elements, DOF, and color.

I concur, the staging area is the place to be.

Two TO icons in one image, out the window of the Red Rocket, now that's impressive.

Loving this series. You have no idea the 'fire' is made of balloons when you see the photo in the portal.
