Photos from yesterday’s St. George’s parade. Be warned, there are a lot of pictures of scooters. Because there were a hell of a lot of scooters. And scooters are cool.
The scooter rally that led the parade was worth turning up for all by itself. You can scroll through the pictures above. There are a few before the one I chose to start on, but they have dimensions and would have made viewing the rest awkward.
I’ve got quite a way behind with editing and uploading my photos. Today may be a day of Photoshopping and uploading.
There are more pictures from Sunday’s parade in the Saint George’s Parade 2010 set on Flickr. If you look closely at the full size version of thgis one you’ll be able to see me and the mayor in reflection.
Happy St. George’s day. Saints days always sneak up on me.

Jack Straw reminds us that Saint George was a Turkish Arab.
I did get some quite good photos of the Saint George’s parade yesterday, but they’re on someone else’s camera. I might be able to post a few on Wednesday. In the mean time, check out Stuart R Brown’s set on Flickr.
Only recently has the country started to feel it can celebrate St. George’s Day without worrying that some might think they’re being racist. Sadly, a bunch of idiots want to spoil all that hard work- the BNP intend to turn up to the St. George’s parade at the end of the month and sell “patriotic merchandise”.
If I remember, I’ll be there. But I’ll be ignoring the bigots.
