Yesterday was supposed to be a photo shoot that I was really excited to do but we canceled it due to strong winds that were forecast (it ended up being a beautiful day). Aryn and I instead rode our bikes to A.L. Davis Park to watch the Indians parade for Super Sunday. I packed a small, compact camera with a zoom. I had actually decided that I wasn't going to take pictures but I brought the camera anyway, just in case.
It was really a perfect day. We laid in the park, shared polish sausage and downed them with dollar beers sold to us by a man and a woman who had set up shop in the back of their pickup truck. It was Aryn who started to take pictures while I sat down with a plate of crawfish, sausage, corn on the cob, turkey neck and boiled potatoes (all for 5 bucks) as I watched the Indians, revelers and musicians pass by. After I finished, the picture bug kicked in and I didn't stop from then on.
I've been shooting a lot with this little camera, the Panasonic Lumix that was released probably five years ago. I typically shoot with only prime lenses but I enjoyed taking advantage of the zoom because it allowed me to stay out of the way of every one.
