We were in Bolinas, California on the 4th of July. Bolinas is a small coastal town outside of San Francisco in Marin County. It is tucked betwixt the up thrust mountains and the coast. The only way in and out are along twisty-windy mountain roads. Therefore it is semi-secluded.
Each year they have a rather informal 4th of July parade that ends with a group of Brazilian dancers. The parade started at 11:00 am and the coastal for had not cleared…just yet. As you go down through the images, note that the sky starts out gray and turns to blue.
So here’s the challenge for a bird, bug and boat photographer; work with these energetic dancers, take the lighting conditions as they present themselves, walk backwards AND DON’T MAKE THEM LOOK BAD!
That was a wonderful learning experience. Okay, I admit that I felt right at home with all these feathers. Would I do that again? Are you kidding? When’s Carnival?
