Everbody Loves a Parade - Part I
Posted By: daacon, 03-13-2008, 06:44 AM

We had finished our S.C.U.B.A. dive around 04:30 pm in Playa del Carmen and were hanging around waiting for the rest of crew to pick us up. After a few cervaza's at the local watering hole we wondered about the street. It was now about 06:00 pm (we had arranged to meet at 05:30 pm) but ya know this is holidays and well stuff happens. We had some two way radios so the kids and I figured they would eventually make it and continued walking around. Then all of a sudden we heard sirens, music and volia a parade! Right place right time - only had limited camera gear - but had beer so it all worked out haha

We did eventually hear from the pick-up crew, stuck in traffic and they missed all of this. It was hard to get any clear shots as the crowd was insane. The music was festive and the colors were great. Enjoy!

Some eye candy for both sexes , think she knew where the camera was

The costumes were bright and colorful!

Thans dantuyhoa yes she does although she did get there until well after the parade finished. The Boy and I were watching with interest and when I showed her the pictures all I talked about was look at color ! (Been married 22 yeas now so no worries Mexico had a lot of eye candy for both of us!)

Thanks Paul - for this particular series the camera and built in flash take credit - I was totally unprepareped for this event in fact I left the lens hood on !!! so at 18mm there was some cropping to get rid of that shadow !!
