St. Patricks Day in NYC; a wondrous melange of snow, Irish tradition and vomit

It came and went again but this year it was graced with blustery winds, beautiful snow and freezing temps. The side streets around the 252 year old parade are packed with staged parade participants waiting, sometimes hours, for their turn to enter so its a perfect place to meander and photograph. Back on 2nd Ave., thousands of drunk non-Irish revelers brought their ribald and voracious enthusiasm for binge drinking, everything green and foam hats to the borough.

For the technically interested, this all was shot on a Mamiya 6 on 120 Fuji film that expired in 2004, hence its slightly weird hues and density.
