Great daddo 2013-10-12 15:50

Hi Kev. You hadn't visited the event for decades, multiply that by thousands over the years and then bang, the last one is upon us. So we all lose something, knowing that one colourful thread in the expression of our humanity is lost forever. Makes me sad to look at this image where the "crowds" seem somewhat thin. Still, there were smiles. Wide angle is very effective here, capturing the setting and adding to the sense of movement. Regards. Klaudio.

Default To daddo: Crowds...

You are right Klaudio - the crowds were much less than when I came all those years before but still lots of people this year by the time the parade reached the town centre - here in this picture it was very early in the event. Part of the reason for it stopping is financial, partly the difficulty of commitment of volunteers and there has also been an impact on the crop itself - the numbers of tulip petals available have diminished greatly.

best wishes Kev
