Remember the Milwaukee Circus Parade?
Just Clowning Around...
This was July 17, 2001 and could have been one of the the last Circus Parades to roll down Wisconsin Avenue, if it wasn't for the support to bring it back next summer.
In this year's "state of the city" address, Mayor Tom Barrett called for the parade's revival, adding that 2009 would be an ideal date because it coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Circus World Museum and would be the 30th time the parade would be held in Milwaukee. Could be a CoPA photo Op!
This was taken with my first digital camera - the Canon D30. I'm reviving some images to work with in Painter X. This one was kind of cheating by using an auto-clone method to create the abstract under painting. The face of the clown was hand painted to bring back detail.
