And now for something entirely different, I present my 501st Legion friends from this weekend's Rose Festival parade.


The line-up for the Portland Starlight Parade this year was a little chaotic, and the lighting around our departure area was terrible (I'm not fond of that white, white sky). Still, I grabbed a couple of shots I'm reasonably pleased with. I needed a better background, but with so many people around, it ended up being impossible (I was on my back on the pavement in my Biker Scout costume for this, trying to avoid bands, pedestrians, cops and other distractions--not exactly ideal). I do like the crooked stop sign, with the bent one way above it. Very menacing.


We were #93 out of around 100 entries this year, so we got home really late (after midnight). It was interesting getting up at 6am to head out on a bushwhack the next morning. ;-)
