I had the pleasure of shooting many interesting animals at the Adelaide 2010 Christmas Pageant, including one large pink one that I don’t recognise. It was funny to watch kids reactions to the enormously over-sized floats as they trundled down King William Street in the Adelaide CBD.
Here are eight of the biggest animals I had the good fortune to shoot and capture. (Yes, slight play on words there!)
3. Unknown Pink Ogre. Please tell me what or whom this is!
Thankfully there were a few Australian animals included in the parade. Yes, there were many more than this, but some eluded my view – more often by a head or umbrella that popped up when I least expected. Thankfully I found a few playing cricket!
6. Koala, Goanna, Rabbit and Wombat
That was fun. Tomorrow night, more photographs from the Pageant: Portraits of smiling participants.
