I went to the first Mardi Gras parade of the season so I thought I had this stranger thing totally wrapped up. At these parades, a lot of people costume and the more garish the better so I assumed all I had to do was point and shoot. That is exactly what I did but the sun was in my eyes so I couldn’t be sure of what I was getting. I ended up with a few good photos of costumers but the surprise winner was dressed in ordinary clothes. What I loved about this photo is I couldn’t be sure if he simply caught me in the act or was staring at my ridiculously garish hat.
