Veteran's Day Parade: Houston
Nov 12, 2012

given all the brouhaha about the 28 Summicron, I dusted off mine & headed downtown for Houston's Veteran's Day Parade

I could only get there for the beginning & the traffic was surprisingly heavy, so I headed for the preparation area & was able to walk against the flow, so as to take as much of it in as I could given the short time available

here is one that worked just as I had hoped, which is not always the case, particularly when using a wide angle (I love busy photographs)

a rainstorm was threatening, but I was pleased to see the crowds as well as all the participants

this group represents disabled veterans

I heard the stretch Hummer was being used for some who were unable to make the march otherwise
