Today was the 2015 San Francisco Carnaval parade. Last year, I shot the parade during Derrick Story’s San Francisco Street Photography Workshop (which was great). This time, I shot it on my own.
Memorial day is the unofficial start of summer. And true to form, it was cool today in San Francisco. But that didn’t dampen spirits. It was a great event.
Right after I got there, I got one of my favorite shots of the day.
The people marching were definitely feeling it.
And the bands worked the crowds so that we felt it too.
My last shot of the day. She carried this enormous “shell” the whole length of the parade. Smiling all the way. That’s impressive stamina.
We’ll be back to Africa tomorrow, but I was at the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market in San Francisco this morning and saw this display at Capay Organic. Orange and red cherry tomatoes. Black mission figs. And flower centerpiece. One of the many reasons I love the Bay Area.
These are at the Fort Mason farmers’ market. Not my usual market, but nice. And while these look like purple Padrons, the nice lady warned me that they pack a punch more like a habanero.

At the Carnaval Parade. Soccer drills in the street while marching in the parade. Pretty good. I bet they were pretty tired by the end.
