Mummers 2009
I finally made it to see the Mummers Parade, a Philadelphia New Year's Day tradition. Fellow Philly Strobists Denis and John joined me at Broad and Washington to watch the comic and fancy divisions march, followed by string band performances.

It was a good location to interact with the performers and move around a bit; we even got fairly close for the string bands - big lenses are almost as good as a press pass!

We didn't get to do any off-camera lighting, but kept are flashes on-camera and cranked them way up to overcome the very backlit string bands. Lots of post-processing evened out the near-misses.
