I went to the Yankee ticker-tape parade today in the Canyon of Heroes. It gave me inexplicable nostalgia for an era before my time, even though there was more shredded office paper and toilet paper (and apparently, confidential medical records) than actual ticker-tape.
Sadly, the only halfway decent shots I got were of the gorgeous buildings and sky. (here is an idea of the crowd. I was in the 3rd row behind the fence)
I need to invest in a dSLR. I'm so sick of lag, and poor light acquisition. My (inherited) Nikon Coolpix 8400 is only good for photographing big expanses of things that do not move.
