First, I have indeed switched out my header image for a spring like shot, even though as of the time I wrote this last evening, it was snowing heavily. It's a shot from the Tulip Festival last May.
The St. Patrick's parade was held last Saturday here in Ottawa. It was a particularly cold day as the parade went along a route that started at City Hall and ended at Lansdowne. I went along the route, photographing at various spots, mostly where there weren't onlookers. It started out with flags and bagpipes. I have more from this over the next two days.
