sending in the clowns

one thanksgiving morning
many
 many 
years ago 
i got up 
very
 very
 early
 grabbed my 35mm sir 
yes
 it was
 long
 before 
dslrs 
were even an idea 
and
 trekked
 through
the damp
the wet 
to 
central park west at 75th street

 it was me and the mounted police 
i had
 literally
 a curbside spot
where i waited
 in the cold
 over an hour 
maybe longer 
for the parade to begin

 this is my favorite photo 
from that morning

 i transferred it 
scanned it 
from the 35mm print 
turned it digital 
some years ago
 to use on a holiday card 

i dont think 
i have ever shared it here on my blog

 i give the clowns 
actually 
employees in costume
 of 
the macy's thanksgiving day parade 

i hope you are all indoors
snug warm
getting ready
for
a day
of family
of friends
of turkey
of football
of 
thanks
