Memorial Day parade in a small New England town

  1. I went out today to work on my "street shooting." Not sure this really counts, as I basically stayed in the same area shooting all the events/people around me. :tongue:

    This is our town's Memorial Day parade and Remembrance. It was VERY nicely done on a humid, buggy morning.

    In they come, this is the Revolutionary war contingent

    Afterwards, they gave out ice cream to the kids.

    Nice shots Gretchen. Nothing like small New England towns :smile:. Is the last one your child?
     
  3. Gretchen,

    With respect, I think #2 are American Civil War, not revolutionary war. The uniforms and weapons are more mid 19th century.

    Nice shots.
     
  4. Agreed, they are a breed their own! :smile:

    Yes, that's Emilie. :smile:
     
  5. No offense taken Mark! I'm admittedly the World's worst history person. I thought someone behind me said something about the "Revolutionary war" group, and that's where I took it from. You are most likely correct. I defer! :smile:

    Nice shots. The last one is remarkable. Small child enjoying ice cream with the crosses and flags in the background. Great concept. I can not help but wonder what the view might have been a little to the left so we didn't see that car in the background....just the kid, crosses, flags & trees.

    All the shots are very nice and have a certain resemblance to what I saw yesterday in little ol' Green Bay :)
     
  7. Thank you Randy!

    I was originally shooting with more view to the left, but then a group planted themselves and was chatting. Had to shift view to get them out. :frown: The car is at a stop sign, so they came/went as I shot (this is a tiny triangle of land, the crosses/flags are a temporary set-up around Memorial Day).
