This little gal was concentrating hard on getting candy out of the bag and tossing it to those who lined the parade route. She was among many who participated in the annual Swamp Buggy parade...a unique event featuring a 'buggy' or two, lots of politicians, and a couple of high school bands.

This parade nor the photo shoot here was not on my morning agenda, but this is such a *big* event that they close down the major highway in town for half the day! Since my travels would suffer a major detour, it seemed a better alternative to accept the need for some photography. You know, one of those "if you can't beat them, join them" kind of moments. It also gave me the opportunity to play a bit with people as subjects, since that is not my forte. Naturally, we lean towards our preferences and strengths and there's good reason to promote that, but every once in awhile it is good to 'stretch' our limitations. :) And...another year until the next Swamp Buggy parade - ya'll come on down for it! 2nd Ave N & US 41 E, Naples, FL
