Like last year, Itchyfingers went photo taking on both nights of the Chingay preview and parade. But this time we made sure we arrived earlier to catch the performers preparing for the show. Since Itchyfingers are more used to taking photos of nature and architecture, we were at first quite shy about going so close taking people. So we kept at a distance and took photos of them. They were all dressed in beautiful costumes with fancy makeups. But the performers were amazing! They were more than happy to be photographed! Everyone was so happy and enthusiastic, they must had felt proud to be part of the parade. Walking among these performers, somehow made us feel like part of the parade too, with a sense of involvement and participation… :p It was especially exciting to see those familiar faces whom we just shot earlier before the show at the actual parade dancing and performing.
