A quintessential right of passage in this small Kansas town for its high school students is to promenade down Main Street fetted, cheered and honored as ambassadors of the future by the good citizens of the town.

Digcamfan, can't you just imagine how wonderful that picture would have been had the photographer gotten into Photoshop and recolored the gowns of thepromenading young ladies red?

Well, gee...possibly, Bcoultry

There is already one red jacket in the lower left though so do you think more than one red clad subject would be too many? :P

Seriously, I must disclose that I do not use Photoshop, just PSP7.

I just love how this town celebrates its young adults.

Here is the tidbit I mentioned in my entry...

The name of the town is:

Wellsville

Though red is in the photo, it draws the eye away from, not to, the subject, so that's why I remarked on coloring the gowns red.

I'm not connecting at all with the name of the town. Did something significant happen there?

No, nothing in the news about the town...

I just kinda like the expression...

"All's well in Wellsville."

Come to think of it, how could anything extreme happen in a town named Wellsville?Surely, it lives in the fifties. Leave It to Beaver and Father Knows Best, black and white and very few grays.

Now I've made myself sad. Maybe a bologna sandwich will help.
