Something I have always loved and been inspired by is street photography. But I have to say, living in a town where there are quite literally a million times as many chickens and cows than people can really cramp your street style. Also we don't have a street. Just one highway which I refuse to let my children go anywhere near because I know how fast I drive on it. 

A unique opportunity does present itself once a year when that highway is magically transformed into a city street for our town's annual St Patrick's Day Festival. I had this amazing vision of a set of photos taken not of the parade itself but of the awe the parade inspired as it went by. So this year I hitched a ride with my husband in the ambulance. I *love* these black and white images of kids watching the parade go by. Some of my favorites ever.
