Garda

Yesterday we went to see the ships again. It was the time for the crew parade. Just before the parade came, this garda was telling us to clear the route.

You have in front of an interesting event. At least around here, it has always aroused a lot of my interest. A good snapshot.

@Jypyä Pop: I thought the parade would be an interesting event, but if was nothing I've seen before in the Tall Ships Race. They were practically running through the streets and then disappeared somewhere and there was no such feeling there usually is. They looked very tired and most of them seemed to be miles away.

I hope he did his job with a smile on his face

@CElliottUK: His eyes seemed to have a hint of smile in them. :)

A man and machine coupled with a uniform makes them seem even more officious!

@Richard: Yep.

But you captured him first, you also captured the atmosphere

Nice picture, too bad that drove off! Did you get still some good pictures of ships?:-))Haleja.


Beautiful day for both of you!

@Oiva: We only had to take few steps back... Yesterday we didn't stay for very long, it started to rain and the wind was bitterly cold. Don't know if I'm going to my photo walk today at all, have to see if the weather gets any better...

Have a great day!

@Ari: :)Ennemminkin tuo taisi huudella, että menkäähän nyt pois alta tai nuo väsyneet merimiehet ei pääse juoksemaan teidän ohi tarpeeksi nopeasti... :)

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

How wide was the parade? Looks like you've left plenty to me.

@The Mouse: Just had to take two steps back, off the white stone. :-)
