In Philadelphia, New Year's Day MEANS: The MUMMERS' PARADE!!!!
----
And AFTER the parade (in the frigid streets), there's the Mummers' FANCY BRIGADE competition inSIDE the Convention Center. This is the second year that I have been privileged to shoot the "Fancies" with Bill. It's three hours of colorful, musical extravaganza to delight your eyes, your ears, and your IMAGINATIONS!
---
Here's one of the shots. I'll post more in the coming days.

This looks like quite a show. I can just bet that each person in the audience walked away fully entertained. This is such a unique look, love it. The colors, the costumes, the whole feel of the picture is of fun entertainment. A fun and beautiful look Michelle.

In all my 29 years of life, (HeeHee), I have never heard of this parade!

Are Mummers the little green Swamp Thing people or are they Alien gods??

They all look pretty creepy to me, but like BUGS, I suppose I could learn to love them if you do. Hahahaha! (Those ARE pretty greens, and I MIGHT wear that dress sometime?)

Great job with your technical's, Michelle. It's a very cool thing for us all to be able to see!

The costuming is outstanding. It must take months to prepare for this.
