I guess our equivalent is Remembrance Day; 11 November and the WW1 Armistice.
Always nice to see communities continuing the tradition of Memorial Day parades and honoring veterans. You captured the sights of the event well. I wonder which war that first gentleman served in...?
yes, the weather was truly miserable over the weekend but yesterday...spectacular.
Wonderful sights, Jack. Nice portraits included here too.
Super series of shots Jack, such an important day, for many reasons..to honour the remaining vets, remember the lost and hopefully to learn from past mistakes.
Looks like it was a good parade!
Nice parade. Looks (almost) like some of the same faces from yesterday's parade, I mean Commencement.
It is always good to see a parade like this!
I'm glad the weather cooperated!
We never have parades. We have demonstrations.
It's hardly ever sunny for ours in November! What did you do to get them all to smile and wave at you? I'll bet you were standing next to a pretty girl.
We have our remembrance day in November so it is usually not warm like this! Good shots, Jack!
Very nice parade and captures - and how good Memorial Day was observed there. We don't have parades for the long weekend, alas.
Love the gentleman at the top and the flags especially. We have a large Veteran's Day Parade but nothing for Memorial Day.V
Our equivalent here is Remembrance Day. So it being November, a nice sunny day is out of the question. These are good shots of the vets. I imagine that first one goes back to the Second World War.
Nice photos of the parade.
Great captures here.
Nice series, Jack. You take great photos of your chosen subjects. Thanks!
Enjoyed your parade series. Looks like a fine celebration. Thanks for your comment on my antelope shots. They are beautiful animals. Not as easily spooked as deer.
After accompanying WWII vets on an Honor Flight several weeks ago, I will always look at Memorial Day through different eyes. Love your photos, Jack.Bises,Genie
Wonderful captures as always. :D
A beautiful event there and your pictures are fabulous!Léia
