2010 rose parade photos


yesterday's rose parade was pretty enjoyable. unlike last year, i was not sitting in the front row. however the perch i found to snap photos from gave me a pretty great vantage point. this first photo is of the first float of the parade. check out how tall it is! the photo does not do it justice. for those who didn't watch on tv, this band member raised and lowered the bugle throughout the parade. as a side note, i just noticed that i caught the goodyear blimp in this photo as well.

those who want a little more insight into yesterday's photo, i've posted a video clip from our ride through the streets. you can find it added to the post.

other area bloggers who were at the parade (i'll keep updating this list as they appear)...

This is a fine shot, bw! And, your rite - the photo doesn't give this bugler justice to his size.

How much sleep did u get after you got off your tricycle?

I only covered day 1 of the parade, on Thurs. Skipped this Friday part 2 sleep in late. And, recover.

Beautiful photo of the marshal.

Very nice Ben! I love how the blurred people in the stands kindof blend in with the roses on the float. It's great that you didn't get any of the road so the float is literally just floating through roses and people. Lovely!

This float was the reason I wanted to go to the parade and take photos. I'm glad you all like it! I've got a few more this week for you.
