They are obviously on their way to a meeting of the Loyal Order of Water Buffalo. It's a cool display, and nicely pictured.
So love the story and back history of this interesting image, fun capture!
Boy, somebody is taking this competition seriously ..... all in fun, of course. Really interesting, Paul. Wish we had something like that catch on down here.
Nice revisit!
Thanks Chris, Wade, Harry, and Andy!

This is the view I have to put up with each week day when I'm working. It's just terrible... :)

I had a tough time picking a title from the movies that I have, for this shot. Although the title conveys the view I see, the movie does not... Of course "A View to a Kill" wouldn't have been much better. :)

Ultra slight rotation, maybe, but I love the parameter and general framing and sizes picked on this image. Great background color blur... love love this concept with this lens! Well done Paul.

The flag patterned heart and table cloth were made by my mom. The flag is for my dad, who served on a small carrier (USS Wake Island) in the Pacific theater during WW II - hence the title.

Wow, seeing a lot of wonderful triangles today, and this one has a great pop of color and good story behind some important objects. Thanks for sharing.

Day 21 - I'm going to go with Chris on this one, Paul. Simple and beautiful. Well done.
It's a beautiful tableau, Paul. And a wonderful tribute to your Mom and Dad. I think I might have chosen f/8 or f/11 for this one, but that is nitpicking. Well done.
Thanks Harry. I wanted to make sure I got the name plate in focus, along with the heart, although I could have push for more DoF. Thanks for the idea.
