    This parade is a simple symbolic statement that unites people in a public gesture of support and welcome. Its also a fantastic photo opportunity.

    All images taken with OMD EM5 & CV [email protected] 1.2, ISO was 2000 with noise reduction in Photoshop.

    Pretty cool Phil! Any images from afar with a super wide - that perhaps show the lanterns in the parade (in a row or whatever - that's what I think of as a parade)?

    It was my first time there, was packed with people, I had three children in tow and got too caught up in the moment so I just mainly stayed in one place to take the photos, but there is always next year..:) The parade ended up in a rotunda where they had dancing and other performances. The aboriginal performance was taken with the Oly 75mm.
