Crowd Building before parade

The Parade starts right in front of my building at noon. I'm expecting a complete madhouse today. The wife and kids are coming in to watch

8:03 Getting off the subway and people are ALREADY lined up against the barricades and cheering the buses going by. They are 4 hours early.

8:53 getting louder and louder out there. Cars laying on the horn, crowds cheering

I don't know if its your camera or your eye or both. Either way I have to say again, I really enjoy your photos.

The secret to Photography, if you dont have a nice camera, is to take alot of fucking pictures. If you take 100 pictures you will get 2 or 3 awesome ones.

If you want 6 awesome pictures you're going to HAVE to take 200 photos.
