The crowd at the San Francisco Giants' World Series parade celebration filled the wide sidewalks on Market Street. It was impossible for me to see the players, let alone take pictures of them (I'm "vertically-challenged"). Instead, I focused on photographing the crowd. There are no screaming fans here, only the calm before and after the storm–people milling about or waiting around, some kids sulking even. I thought there was something interesting here. These images are certainly not the type that get picked up for the front page of a newspaper or magazine, but I had fun taking them as the anticipation built up. I went home that night and caught the highlights from the parade on the evening news.
