Brookline Memorial Day Parade – 5.30.2011

It’s been a few years since I took my camera up to the Memorial Day Parade. I haven’t felt terribly inspired to do so for a while. However, this morning I had an idea of an image I was hoping to capture, so I broke out the D300 and 80-200mm zoom and headed on out in the heat. As it turns out, I was able to get exactly what I had pictured in my head. And here it is:


Being a drummer in ‘a previous life’, this image holds special meaning for me. I am so happy that it turned out the way I wanted it to.

Here are a few more from the parade…

As anyone close to me knows, I have this odd photographic fetish of loving to take pictures of people taking pictures. So when this opportunity arose, I didn’t hesitate to grab it!
