Series - Tampa's Gasparilla Parade 5

Greetings from the Hermit Writer.

Bead throwers. Oh yeah. I was at a parade.

Where good friends kicked back.

Smiled for the camera.

Collected beads and eye patches.

There was a lot of bead throwing. Can you believe I only came home with two strands?

The folks on the floats had a blast too, I think.

Always a grouch looking on. 

I don't know why, but this is one of my favorite shots.

This guy looked like he was really hitting on the damsel. (Just saying)

Did I mention the festival is pirate themed?


  1. Loved the vulture.
    And your favourite shot? Happiness and movement. What's not to love.

  2. That looks like the best parade I've ever seen, even better than a Christmas parade.

  3. All fantastic....what fun....and would have loved some of those beads.

  4. That looks like so much fun; have enjoyed these photos tremendously!

  5. I'm surprised you had time to get two! The grouch ( vulture) is really cute, and your fun shots are most delightful!

  6. What a kooky parade...I did notice that some of your captures are well endowed!

  7. I love the beads, hippies in drag.

  8. Gotta luv Linda Kay's comment. :-) Have a great weekend!

  9. i'm not sure i am fun enough for these antics!!! great smiles, colorful outfits and awesome captures of the fun!!!!

  10. I think the camera guy had a great time taking photos!!

  11. Beads/jewelry is certain a pirate thing!
