More from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This is the All-State Hawaii Marching Band, which I must say had the most outstanding, colorful costumes. They sounded even better! Those are grass skirts they are wearing and when they marched in time the skirts swayed and created a neat visual effect. I have one more pic of them that I will post next week. Thanks for all the great comments, and I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend (in the States, at least!).

They sure do march in straight rows! You're right about their costumes - they're gorgeous.

Wow! Another amazing picture!
This must be a huge parade!
Not really the kind of costumes you expect to see in NYC! Very colorful!

Wonderful point of view for this shot. The repetitive pattern makes this a real winner. Even the little "flaw" where a couple of the marchers are a step or so behind helps to make this shot special.

very cool! i didn't get to watch all of the parade so I missed this band but it must be a blast to see the parade in person!

The lines in this photo are fantastic, and I like how you tilted the image a bit, it adds a sense of movement to the picture.

This is a great abstract image. I had to look twice to see that what was creating the pattern. Very nice!

The repetition is color is excellent especially against the white lines. Excellent!

Love the repetition and the angle. That's some serious spam you recieved.
