Today is the annual traffic nightmare in Manhattan known as the St. Patrick's Day Parade. My 5D and I are curbside on Fifth Avenue happily anticipating the start of the parade. In a half hour or so that empty street you see in the photo will be filled with dignitaries, NYFD, Irish step dancers, military platoons, and, best of all, men in skirts! (I know they are called kilts; leave me alone.) There shall be lots and lots of photos.

The weather today is sunny and clear, with a forecast high of 64F. It is a great day for a parade!

It is going to take a little while for me to finish uploading, then sort and edit my photos from today's St. Patrick's Day parade. I stood on 5th Avenue for the entire 6-hour parade (save the last five minutes, when I finally had to find a restroom). My feet are aching still, but I had a marvelous time.

Photos are coming, I promise!

Post-processing tip: deliberately under-exposing by 1 stop saturates the colors in-camera, so you need not deepen the colors in software. I learned this trick from the wonderful Peter Phun, and it worked like a charm, today!
