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!
