I have two other posts prepared from this parade. One is girls in the orange colours big hat and another is the "crown make-up" boy. Those girls and boy are really identifiable. I have a little doubt in my mind if I should not post those. Therefore, I decided to pull off those two posts for now.
I will check how privacy act applied to the public parade like this, but because the subject are kids, so I will take safe side for other two.

This is same place, same time just a different angle.
I was walking on the street in this early morning with my camera hanging around my neck. I was going back and forth to take particular this shot. Suddenly, a police officer calling me from the inside of fence of this big house behind me. She asked few questions like "What I'm doing?", "Why taking photo? What is that for?", "if I'm from media or some organisation" and so on.
Well, that big house is The Premier House, I guess our PM was there on that day or at least the day before. She (Police Officer) was just doing her job but that was a bit of surprise. I believe there is a lots of tourists taking photo around this street and I wasn't even look at The Premier House (no appeal for me from that side anyway).
