Fiesta DC 2012

Fiesta DC parade went down Pennsylvania Avenue this afternoon.  I have taken photos of a number of parades along this route – and it remains a challenge to get good shots – crowds in the way, strong light and heavy shadows, usually costumes with hats that shade the faces, busy backgrounds, etc.  So I took lots of shots but only got a few keepers.   Hopefully I will keep learning how to work better under these conditions.
