Parade Waiting, Asheville, NC - 2014

I'm usually a little shy about photographing strangers on the street. If you want to watch an example of how I DON'T do street photography, watch this short video of New York photographer Bruce Gilden. I don't think I could ever get up the nerve to do what he does!
At Mardi Gras in Asheville last Sunday afternoon the pickin's was easy. Everybody had a camera of some sort, everyone was taking pictures, and nobody was objecting to having their picture taken. I wish it was that easy every time I went out to do some street photography!
