Toot Your Own Horn!



We're back at the Homewood High School Homecoming Parade again today. ( Scroll down if you missed yesterday's post) Today, the brass section gets to take a bow. The top photo I love, because if you look closely you can see the happy spectators, the flag and even yours truly boldly standing in the street to get these good shots! And the young lady below, played a mighty fine "Georgia On My Mind" solo!

I almost couldn't believe it at first! What a fantastic reflection! Great job, V.!

Mister Earl said...

Those pictures look like they came right out of National Geographic! The sousaphone reflection is great. A good reason to ban those fiberglass sousaphones, no?

You clever girl. I never would have thought of doing that.

Jacob said...

These are all great, but the top one is special. It needs to be embiggened but when you do all kinds of fun prevails!

Cute costumes, cute kids and it looks like they're playing their hearts out!

I also love that header shot!

Need to join with Jacob in admiration of your header, V. Lovely old sign.

Virginia said...

Julie,
HA, you are quick on the trigger. Jacob was commenting on the Patriot Band header. I just now changed it to the old sign. Glad you like it! :)
