A Mummer Ate My Camera

I went to the St John’s Mummers Parade on Saturday (December 17, 2011) and to no ones surprise it was a colourful and fun time. It’s great to see this tradition alive and well in Newfoundland. We all deserve a break from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Taking some time to have some fun is a great way to relieve stress and spend time with family and friends.

  2. You did a great job in photographing this festival. I like the title of your article by the way. I thought it was really eaten by a mummer. Anyway, what model/brand of camera did you use? I look forward to reading your response.

    1. Hi, I used a Canon 5D MKII with a 70-200 L F/2.8 lens. Thanks for your comments.

  3. I agree with the previous comments. All of the photos you've taken from this festivity are great and vivid. I am a frustrated photographer and I love to learn how to become a great one.

  4. The camera you used looks very compelling. I like the vividness of the images. Canon 5D MKII is an expensive DSLR but very it's worth it. I'd love to have a camera just like the Canon 5D MKII.
