The #Hastings #SkyParade And A #Beach #Photo
Excuse the slight crookedness to the above photo... I wasn't holding my iPhone as straight as I thought I was. But, since Kelly says the slight crookedness is the only real problem with the photo, I figured I'd go ahead and post this picture of the beach anyhow. It's probably not an awesome photo, but I'm sure those of you who love the beach will appreciate the gesture.
Yesterday (Friday) morning, a parade marched along the street that seporates the building I live in from the beach.
I hadn't been paying much attention to what was going to be going on around here, so I wasn't entirely sure what it was for. Plus, since we weren't expecting any parades or anything, Kelly wasn't around with his camera to take photos, and there wasn't time to get him by the time I realized it was a parade. So, I did my best using my iPhone and TapTapSee.
I managed to get these two photos:
The second photo is just the tail end of the parade. Like I said, I wasn't ready for it. Plus, it wasn't a very long parade. Still, though the photos aren't fantastic, only one of the photos I took was no good at all... It was a very crooked shot of the various people - many my neighbours, I expect - who were lined up in the street watching the parade go by. But, hey, since I was trying to be quick, and doing the photos by myself, I think two out of three attempts being reasonably successful is an excellent thing!
Oh, and... In case you're wondering... It was the "Hastings Sky Parade" and those people were marching to the recently re-opened peer (which was finally repaired and renovated after having burned down something like six years ago).
For more details on what it was all about - and better pictures - check out this page from the Hastings Observer (the local newspaper).
