Posts tagged: Patriot’s Day Parade
The parade is intended to celebrate our military men and women, young and old.
I’m a vet and I wasn’t asked to participate. Nothing new for me.
As you can see I’m perched on a second-story deck on Laguna’s main street – Forest Ave. The parade marches right under me. This was good because I was interested in ONE and only one group that I thought would be in the parade. This group is a group of young Marine Corps scouts. They were special because they carries a giant American flag. You can see it here.
For two hours plus I waited. Getting sunburned in the process. No Marine scouts. No giant flag.
Maybe next year. I hope.

Have you ever been taking that really great photo and a hand sticks itself into the photo? Or you never see the street pole dead center in the photo? Or a person, uninvited, steps into the photo with one of those dam Starbuck’s cups that everyone can identify? Or in your eagerness to get that perfect photo, your decisive moment of greatness, you forget to wait for the main characters in your photo story to get into proper position?
It’s not easy getting that many mistakes into one photo and having it in focus and with proper exposure.
That’s the problem with these new digital cameras they’re never out of focus and hardly ever under or over exposed.
But they still can’t control the human element – the photographer.
Looks like I can’t either.
