    I live in a small town in southern Oregon. But it's a bit of an arts colony, and a haven for people who can't seem to color between the lines. So when we have a parade to celebrate the day our ancestors threw off the yoke of British oppression, we do it our own way.

    And just to preclude any possible taint of patriotic fervor or jingoism in this thread, I shot them all with with my Industar-61L/D 55mm f/2.8 from the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. :p

    Nice photos. Great lens.
    Here in Philadelphia they tell me that The Colony is now bigger than the Mother Land.
    Not sure...........

    My brother in law is in Russia. He sends me rebuilt lenses that he did and they are scary good...,

    Looks like great fun! And happy 4th of July. Some of us over here in Europe appreciate what you do and that you keep an eye on the bad guys, for all of us ;)
