Warning for sensitive viewers: the following contains people giving me the finger.
Here are 14 frames that represent 10 seconds of my experience at the Paris Techno Parade on Saturday.
A group of guys arrived near the end of the parade to have some fun bulldozing their way through the crowd. One of them noticed me taking a photo of a bandaged guy and suddenly the whole group was coming at me in a manner that was both playful and dangerous. I have to say that I loved the adrenaline rush of the experience.
I took the photos while walking backwards in order to avoid being surrounded. When it looked like I was about to get mauled, I bowed out in as friendly a way possible.
Here they are in order. Which of the 14 frames is your favorite?
