Project 52 Week 11: Luck O’ The Irish

A big tradition in Kansas City is our St. Paddy’s Day Parade, and since it fell on a Saturday this year, we were actually able to go. One of the best places to people watch, and practice street photography, is at a parade. You can always get great pictures of the floats, cars, bands, horses, and people marching in the parade – but even better, in my opinion, is the crowd shots.

This is my favorite crowd shot from the Kansas City St. Paddy’s Day Parade. You’ve got to love the man in his military kilt, who dressed his son in Irish garb too. The emotional interaction between the two – a seemingly proud father and slightly embarrassed son – is priceless.
