Panda Parade

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 19 February 2013 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Spotted these Panda's in Bristol during the Chinese New Year Celebrations, I'm not sure if they were part of the celebrations but these guys seemed to be trying to be inconspicuous !
Happy Silly Tuesday

Canon EOS 500D 1/500 second F/5.0 ISO 200 39 mm


Unfortunately I don't seem to have as much time as I would like at the present to get on AM3, but I am putting shots on from time to time and will try to visit others when I can.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Mooie from Vancouver, Canada

In North America we had a group of notorious, idiotic but highly entertaining pranksters (JackAss which was a tv show, then a movie)... they often dressed up as Pandas.
