A few more from the parade, taken with the Rollei. I have about 300 digital files to edit through before I post those – I switched to the Canon 5D after shooting these because the Rollei was rather labor-intensive and the lighting was rather dim, limiting me to slow enough shutter speeds that I was getting motion blur with a lot of images and I didn’t want to waste film. I think what came out best with the Rollei are images I’d classify as portraits. It excels at shooting people filling the frame at relatively close distances. Or maybe that’s just what I’m good at and I’m confusing the camera’s talent for my own.

The bright colors on the people really stand out against the backdrop of gray buildings. (Don’t people paint their walls in Philadelphia?)
This is the downtown business district where the parade passes through – there are plenty of more colorful buildings in Philadelphia, just not right in this area.
I love the Bishop!
