Default Some pics from Veterans Day in Pensacola

1) Waiting for Mommy or Daddy to come home



2) Old friend



3) A note taped to the wall



4) D700, Vertical grip, and a lens that has to weigh several pounds..



5) George E "Bud" Day Colonel This man is Awesome! read about him here



6) A couple of WW2 veterans in full battle dress. These guys have grit...they marched in the parade from beginning to end, about 12 city blocks, wearing all this gear.



7) Reflection



8) Emotion



Thanks for looking, and wishing everyone a happy veterans day!

nice series. The parade in NYC was pretty nice, weather was great for this time of year. the vintage uniforms shot is nice. With the vig effect, a BW rendition might work well with it.

Hi Shoturtle! Yes the weather here was perfect as well, last year it got rained out big time, so this year was a success. This was my first time.
