Two different friends were having birthday parties in different parts of the district so of course because I can I took part of both. This photos was taken during one of them but wasn’t from me, but in fact from another friend of mine that wanted to play with my camera some so I gave him a few short tips and he got this which I’m happy with. I did do a little adjustment editing but thats not important. I think the best part was when the birthdays collated and it became a group group of people hanging out.
So I friend of mine was telling me about this earlier in the week and invited me to join in so I figured why not. So the whole deal of the event is about Japanese Americans and how they are a part of our culture and to celebrate it. It started off with me meeting with some people at this one little staged area during a cosplay competition in which the winner and other favorites won some kind of figurine. so then it was wondering around some more, taking more photos and mainly talking to other people there. And finally the parade. It was rather short and I hung with this one group and took some photos of them as the walked the route. It was strange because I’m a little more used to being in a parade on my rollerblades and taking photos from there, because i’m baller like that. I guess it’s because I didn’t expect that to happen, oh well.
