Mardi Gras parades are definitely about pageantry, but the crowd is definitely something that's on display too. This was shot in the French Quarter, and most of the people were trying to peer over or around the crowd to get a glance of Barkus as it passed.

Off-topic for this post (but on-topic for the blog), check out this link:

This is a rare color exhibition of Garry Winogrand's work, curated by Joel Meyerowitz (who shot with Winogrand). Every one of these images is striking (I would even say magnificent), and each of them has the property that if you had dropped them in my lap, I would have guessed they were Winogrands. They are utterly distinctive to him, and kind of a photo acid trip any time I see his color work.
