Bunnies on the Bayou
It was taken during the last Easter, at Bunnies on the Bayou in the Downtown, Houston.
It was really funny that afternoon, just like this guy !!! LOL
Somthing about Bunnies:
Statement of Purpose
Bunnies on the Bayou, Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising and distributing funds for various charitable, educational and cultural programs that seek to improve the quality of life for individuals in our community, and promote education and awareness of individual human rights.
On a sunny Easter Sunday in 1979, a small party among friends gathered at an apartment complex on Clay Street. The word spread of the event, and the following year they set up a sound system outdoors and sent out invitations. By the mid-1980's, AIDS was taking a terrible toll and the party hosts decided to help their friends by charging an "admission" - a bag of food. By the early 1990's the party attendance had grown so large that the hosts decided to move to the new outdoor plaza at the Wortham Center downtown on Buffalo Bayou; Bunnies on the Bayou was born. Rather than food, the Bunnies began to raise money for local charities. Since that time, the event has grown to be Houston's largest annual outdoor cocktail party. Thousands of Houstonians have celebrated Easter with their friends, made new friends, and donated more than $500,000 to area charities.

Beautiful PP work here. You really picked a very unique way to illustrate Easter. The composition is good and I like the placement of the subject within the frame.

One time, I'd think it was one of Queen Elisabeth's hats!

Again, you've done an excellent job of editing this pic to focus the viewer's eye on one particular aspect of it. Although most of it is desaturated, the subject is still bright enough to make the overall pic very attractive.
It was also very intersting to read the note. It's great that people come together to have fun and to raise funds for a worthy cause. The event must have been wonderful and I imagine you must have had a great time there. I have one question though: what were you wearing on the day? Was it anything as bright and creative as the two images you've posted so far? ;-)
Excellent work. I look forward to seeing the rest of this series.

Nice compo and good desaturation work. I don't know if I would dare go into the street wearing such a hat! Perhaps you could tell us a bit more about this event?

Hola Ale, personalmente me gusta mas esta foto y este sombrero mas que en tu foto anterior. jeejej. Es que tenemos que admitir que el modelito esta original. Supongo que es imposible pasar desapercibo con eso en la cabeza. La desaturación quedo al pelo. Excelente enfoque. Por la imagen un acontecimiento muy animado. Gabriel
