We always start the parade with the flag!
Can you tell we sat in the wrong part of the parade route? I was thinking, “Oh boy, shade!” which didn’t work at all for the photos. Do’h!
I’m trying out my new camera with long distance zoom AND action settings. Some hits and misses. But I’m purposely blurring faces here, because it’s not fair to put someone up on the internet without their permission.
I love the above man and his horse every year. He really has his horse dance.
I focused on the beadwork. And fringe is always so pretty. I finally bought a fringed purse. Am I ahead of the fashion curve or behind? When you get to a certain age you don’t care anymore, and you just buy what you like.
I love the rosettes on the forehead straps, and the beadwork on the chest straps. There sure is a lot of time going in to decorating those. I was talking to someone who does beadwork for his art, and he says very few people actually do it anymore, and parents ask him to teach their children. Makes me wonder if those decorations in the photos are carefully kept now and handed down.
I focused on horse photos this year, and of course won’t share the best photos until they show up in paintings. 🙂
The below horse has a nice neck curve and interesting coloring that would be fun to paint.
When you hear about the huge loans farmers need to take out to stay in business, just picture owning more than one of these vehicles. I bet the cost is astronomical. Frankly, I don’t know how they can get our food to market for as cheaply as they do–not when you count in these tractors, employees, land, water, etc. Their expenses must be ENORMOUS.
I always love to see a vintage vehicle, don’t you?
