I just can wait to be king

I just can't wait for a parade
I think it is quite possible that I am suffering from early symptoms of "parade depravation." It is a serious medical condition in New Orleans this time of the year. It's been a long time since the last big parade and Mardi Gras is creepy up, but is not here yet. So, to push back the effects and reclaim my sanity, I dug up this picture of a lion from the St. Patrick's Day parade on St. Charles Avenue earlier this year. Perhaps you, too, are suffering from "parade depravation" and it will have a healing effect on you, too.

I tried to resist, but it took hold of me. I mean, a photographer is a just a conduit -- the picture flows through him/her. And after all the sign was there, waiting for my camera -- on Pixel Eyed, today.

Cute lion parade photograph, shadows deepen the image too...was this part of a float? For those of us who have never seen a Mardi Gras parade, early request for complete details and photographs :).

I grew up near Mobile (home of the first Mardi Gras) so I've been to a few parades. They are such fun!

Love the Lion.

I will be posting a watercolor of a Lion and cub on my Wed. ABC Art post when I get to the letter "L".

I also love a parade.

Your post reminded me of the song, "King of the Forest" on the Wizard of Oz. It's been airing all week and my grandson watches it about everyday.
