St.Patrick's Day Parade, Valletta

St.Patrick’s Day Parade, Valletta 2014

St.Patrick is the Patron Saint of Ireland, a cold wet country but when celebrating here in Malta, you are guaranteed a beautiful sunny day for you to drink your beers, sing and dance while getting a sun tan!

I attended this years parade and concert that was held in St.George’s Square, Valletta. The large group left City Gate and headed down Republic Street. There was a good mix of cultures, ages and props, from shamrocks to funny t-shirts and bright green wigs. The Irish Maltese Circle organised an afternoon of Irish folk music, dance and a touch of Maltese folklore. The afternoon ended with a few songs from Malta’s Keltika!

Here are a few of my photos from the day but the whole album can be seen if you follow me Alan Falzon on Face Book.

About Alan Falzon

Photography has been part of my life since before I was born, my father was a keen photographer who had invested in his own developing equipment. This passion grew with every issue of Life and many other news magazines I used to read instead of doing school home work. Unfortunately I never got the chance to work for Life Magazine, Time Magazine nor any foreign news paper but I have always carried some sort of camera to capture that “Kodak Moment”. Those magazine articles taught me that only a few shots are needed to tell a story, so when combined with the cost of film and developing I learnt to take my time to think and observe before pressing the shutter. Traveling around Australia for a year in 2005 was the biggest learning boost for me. A backpacker on a tight budget, film/developing much more expensive Down Under, living in areas rarely visited by foreigners and getting around on my bicycle I patiently and carefully documented the experience. Australia is a photographers paradise!
