This is my first time participating in the Personal Photo Challenge hosted by Donna at Cottage Days and Journeys.
The challenge this month was to photograph street scenes, a challenge in and of itself to someone like me who lives way out in the country. The I remembered that I had taken a couple of pictures of our town's Founder's Day festivities at the end of summer that might fill the bill so I went searching through the picture folders. All my photos are taken with a basic Canon Power Shot point and shoot camera. It's a challenge for me for sure to present my photos at all, so taking a deep breath and jumping in.
This is definitely my favorite. I was snapping away when I glanced over my shoulder and saw this couple in the middle of the street completely caught up in the music playing nearby. They were oblivious to everyone else around them and just enjoying the day. Happy accident that the balloons in the background match her dress.
These two musicians were engrossed in their pickn' behind the bandstand.
I was interested to see if removing the color would add to the mood of concentration that I was trying to convey in this picture.
Who doesn't love a parade?
