The annual Procession of the Species parade in Olympia was April 29th. I’d kind of stumbled onto the parade last year, and waited all year to go again. It’s a very home-grown even without evidence of corporate sponsorship or advertising. Like they say,
We only have 3 rules:
1. No words or symbols
2. No live animals
3. No motorized vehicles (Wheelchairs are permitted)
I brought along a Pentacon Six that doesn’t fire on all shutter speeds. It needs repair, but its fine if you stick to the shutter speeds that work.
I had a good time, but I’m not enamored with these images. It was a cloudy day, and I was shooting at ISO 200, I think. So I was shooting wide open at f/2.8. Due to the distance from the subjects, I should have been shooting with a smaller aperture. These photos are not so sharp. Plus, I really should buy new film, instead of shooting expired stuff.
It was a high overcast day…and it rained a little.
I’d like to take this camera out and shoot sharper pictures.
