When I flew into New Orleans on Saturday, October 20 for a conference, it also happened to be the night the Krewe of Boo Parade was going by our hotel. The Krewe of Boo is New Orleans’ official Halloween parade.
Since this was my first visit to New Orleans, I decided I would try to get photographs of the parade entries while they passed by. Despite numerous issues with the people standing to my left (they constantly got in front of my camera and also kept trying to push us further to the right), I successfully maintained my position at the front of the crowd. Of course, that also means that sometimes I got pushed up right against a float as someone behind me reached over for some “Mardi Gras” style giveaways.
