Fete de St Blaise: The People.


By the time I'd got myself organised all the best places were taken and I found myself with the mid afternoon sun right in my eyes. It was impossible to catch a photo of the parade but this guy, a stranger, was standing up on the wall right next to me and he and his small companion were having such a great time throwing confetti, I caught them on camera instead.

I think the confetti in the air and the child's excited face says perhaps more about the parade than the actual floats. Great photo.

We imediately imagine the joy of that moment watching their face.
It speaks by itself.
Wonderful portraits, Angela.
And what a starry Sky.
