With my local press days in mind, I can’t resist a good carnival and Morecambe’s makes a great photo opportunity. So I attach my trusty ‘press lens’ (18-300mm) and find a good spot. At least nowadays I don’t normally have notebook in hand ready to do the laborious chore of caption writing!
I didn’t quite catch the start of the parade, but the zoom lens comes in handy.
