Happy Easter from New York.
Today is gloriously sunny and warm, and so I walked over to take a look at this year's Fifth Avenue Easter Parade. I will share some of the photographs I took this afternoon.
Lots of folks were taking photos of themselves.
The man in the red hat was ready to let you join his frame.
Extravagant hat added a festive touch to the little black dress.
Another opportunity waits....
It almost looks as it the vendor's umbrella is part of this gentleman's hat.
Quite a stylish couple.
Balloon hats were available.
That is quite a hat to have resting on one's noggin.
Eager to pose and please many photographers.
Momma is encouraging her child to pose with this willing couple.
This father and daughter were having a grand afternoon.
This gentleman will probably leave the hat at home when he returns to his office tomorrow.
Ice cream became a popular choice as the sun warmed up the crowd.
If you click on the above photo to enlarge it, you might be able to see that this lady made it from folded paper.
Several dressing styles sharing the Avenue.
These cheerful fellows were passing out chocolate eggs to children. I broke my own Lenten chocolate fast with a stop into the busy Lindt shop. Delicious truffles!
Lots of bunny tails on this group.
Some bonnets were very chic.
Some bonnets adhered to the more is more concept.
The above chap branched out!
I am also going to post some more Easter Parade pictures over on my Instagram Page.
Meanwhile, I will close this post with a photograph of a little painting I made and sent as an Easter Card.
I wish you all a wonderfully Happy Easter, and thank you for your visits and comments. It is my intention to be less of a lazy blogger, even though milder weather is tempting me to spend much more time outdoors
