Veterans Day Parade

Spectators watch as the Veterans Day Parade makes its way up S.E. Jackson Street in downtown Roseburg, Ore.  Veterans Day, also known as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falls on Nov. 11, the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I.
 When I was a newspaper photographer I always tried to get in tight on faces at events like this. Today I stepped back for a wider perspective.
I shot the parade with my specialized perspective control lens. I love the effect, especially in photos taken from above. 

 By popular demand here is my best shot of the motorcycles from the parade.  They were very cool.
