St. Patricks Day Parade

March 16, 2019

We got extra credit for shooting this, honestly I feel like most of the shots were super, super annoyingly pedestrian except for the very last one.

Spending a good three hours walking around my old neighborhood (we used to live a block away from Half Priced Books, where this all started) taking photos of drunken and loud people, the parade had finished and everyone was filtering away trying to beat the rush out, and I had a feeling just to keep my camera on me instead of putting it away, and in a sea of green, there was this one lady with a red shirt on sitting down for a smoke.

She looked as absolutely done with this nonsense as I felt. Of all the photos I took that day, this one resonates with me the most because as I was huffing and puffing back, I felt that moment.
