    Some shots of the parade celebrating Thanksgiving.

    I had a lousy spot for shooting and got some terrible glare as I was facing the sun almost the entire time. Believe it or not these were some of the better ones.

    I used both the 70-150 Vivitar and 28-70 Tokina.

    Parade floats, bands, cars, etc:

    Excellent shots you manual focus shooter you! I think the back lighting didn't hurt your shots at all.

    I really like the first two shots - Flag Bearers and the synchronized cornering Harleys (ooops Hondas), but also the classic cars especially the Thunderbirds, and the Stage Coach, and the portraits too... looks like everyone had a great day!

    They are tiny, but strangely the original bodies have more interior room than the later ones. I can't get anybody in the back seat of mine because there's no leg room. You can easily carry 4 in an older one. But the are a hoot to drive. :)
