Hail and Farewell


As the Veteran's Day Parade ended yesterday, I have no idea why I turned my camera straight into the afternoon sun and took this shot.  I'm glad I did.

Its a beautiful shot and with this uniforms and black and white looks like a shot from Life in the forty or fifties. Well done

Serendipity! Works almost every time. Looks like a National Guard group.

From your comment on Ocala, I'm assuming you have tried to sell your arts and crafts at various fairs...from what I've seen I would agree with your assessment...some of the vendors look like they're having no fun at all!

It was inspiration. Having the nerve to shoot into the sun can lead to such dramatic images.
