It’s also fun to see some of the same people year after year and notice what they’ve added to and changed.
Some examples of this.
First, Blanket (the name he gave me) who contacted me in 2009 for a copy of my photo of him. I’ve noticed him each year since and it’s been interesting to watch him get older and see how his regalia changes.
And, while I don’t know his name, I recognize him each year and have come to look forward to seeing what he’s wearing. Despite being fully serious during the Grand Entry, he’s been super generous about posing, and smiling, for photos with anyone who asks him outside.
