Carnaval Parade San Francisco 2009

I want to thank Mission Neighborhood centers, Inc, & Rita Barela Productions, Inc for putting this San Francisco classic parade event together. I'd also like to thank all the artists, performers, musicians, and everyone else involved. I saw many volunteers arrive early in the morning to help organize and coordinate this event and stay late to clean up the streets. Their hard work must be recognized and appreciated. Iíd like to offer a sincere thanks to all the artists who contributed with their beautiful feathered costumes. The energy and color of the Carnaval parade make it one of my all time favorite cultural events, and one that I hope keeps continuing to strengthen our multi-cultural community. I always like to come out and support the San Francisco community and the multi-cultural events. These multi-cultural events are one of reason why San Francisco is among the most famous cities of the world. Please visit their official website for more information: http://www.sfcarnaval.com/

Personally, Carnaval parade event photography is not about how to take beautiful shots of their costumes of different aspect. It is about the spirit of Carnaval with the music, floats, and artist performers. It is about how you blend into the event with my little camera as my point of view. itís about trying to express the mood and excitement from my point of view. Street event photography is about living in the moment and attempting to convey that momentís power and sharing it with the viewer. Street event photography have no rules, no limitations, no boundaries, you can shoot whatever I feel at that moment, just enjoy the event and shoot whatever you like. It is about my heart and how I feel about it. IMHO. I'm inspired by many other San Francisco street photographers and their fantastic work. I admire their energy and time to cover this classic S.F. event year after year. I have lots to learn from them and have been slowly improving my work.

Iíd also like to invite you to explore other photographerís work of this same event; this gallery is merely my perspective of a much larger scheme and you owe it to yourself to see as much of it as possible. I can't cover all the 66 contingents/floats of this year, but please visit the other photographer's sites. Cedric Sims Herve Blandin Bill Taylor Danny Li Kenneth Tham

After enjoying this gallery, go back and check out some of my earlier Carnaval parade photos. Photography is a learning exploration for me, and while Iíve come a long way I still have far to go. Thanks for coming along. Photography has been a long journey for me. I still have lots to learn from YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!

This gallery is dedicated to Mr. James Pan, my master who taught how to shoot photos, taught me the photoshop tricks. The most important part is his philosophy of the understanding the photography world, how to share. it is the most beautiful gift! He can't attend the Carnaval parade event when he was in San Jose last weekend. It was my honor shooting next to the SoCal "Creepy Photographers" in the Fanime event. Their passion shows with their amazing cosplay photos.
