Bang your Drum, Wave your Flag

The "Challenge" theme for February was "Celebration". The obvious subject that comes to mind (for Vancouver residents is the Olympics. The sports side gets covered to death, so for my show, I thought to look at the people in the street, the party feeling, the "celebration" as it were.

I'm usually not a street or people photographer, so getting the shots was harder than usual for me. Being the shy type, I'm not one to walk up to people and ask them to pose for the camera -- plus it might look less natural that way? So all these shots (with exception of my son :-) ) are grabbed on the run as it were.
