Award Shortlist   


By oldgreyheron      
I've taken another step back down memory lane today. Our trip to New York was memorable in so many ways. On Saturday 24th June 2006 there was the "International Cultures Parade" on 6th Avenue. Sadly it was a wet day, but that didn't stop this group of Chinese participants turning out in magnificent costumes and waiting for their turn (whilst sheltering from the rain).

I love the juxtaposition of brilliantly coloured traditional costumes and modern golf umbrellas!

Please view large if you have the time, and give me whatever feedback you feel is appropriate! Many thanks, Mike.

I echo all the comments above. But I especially like the way that the group members are doing their own thing and ignoring the t-shirted individuals who seem to be casing the joint behind them - dignity versus the modern world!
Have a good weekend, Mike!
