Phew I just finished editing 750 photos from The Parade down to about 450 and then another edit down to 160! So here are a couple links to view the long and short versions of The Parade & after-parties:

Cheers & Hope to See You Tomorrow! I’ll be lugging around cameras galore with my Photo Paparazzi Posse :-)
So my good friend Jonathan prompted me to stop feeling creatively unsatisfied by doing photo shoots every Sunday. That’s my plan from now on! Here is the result of a few weekends so far:
Doo Dah is Coming!
Yes it’s FINALLY that time of year :) Are you geared up for it? I’m gettin’ there!
Come one. COME ALL! To the 34.5th Pasadena Doo Dah Parade on April 30th (starts around 11am-ish).
Come watch over 100 entries defend their right to be ridiculous at this annual spoof of the Rose Parade. Always free, always fun, bring a lawn chair. That’s Saturday, April 30th at 11:00am and have a Doo Dah Day. For more information & a map of the route go to www.pasadenadoodahparade.info.
Introduce yourself if you see me running around with a big camera around my neck and pink/green hair!
Oh I posted up info on the tryouts everywhere but HERE! IN any case, it was a spectacular event!
There were many many amazing contestants- such as Jesselynn Desmond, Fuchsia & Violet WhatsIt, and The Whistling Diva! (Yes they were ladies I was rooting for). But the one who amused the crowd and won them over was Red Rosie. Donned with a school girl outfit, she transformed into Wonderwoman while serenading the judges with her melodious song.
I’ll attach a few for eye candy:
Hope to see whoever is reading this at The Parade in a couple weeks!
Queen Skittles, 2009 Doo Dah
I photographed my friend for her Valentine’s day gift for her boyfriend. They enjoy playing scrabble in a 1970’s-like setting :-)
