Francis is a character and he’s an actor. A man of many faces and voices. So I was excited when he asked me to do his headshot session
With a person like Francis it was easy to get an unlimited number of poses … “So Francis, tell me about that Nephew of yours” And into character he goes …” You’re not being a good boy and you have to listen to me” and then he just laughed
Francis, have you ever done any spy movies? and there he goes! ” The name is Bond .. Francis Bond!”
I don’t get the opportunity to shoot astronauts, historical figures and gun-toting pioneers in three corner hats too often. But every year I do when Norwood holds it’s annual Children’s Fourth of July parade.
The main street in town is closed off and at 1:00 PM hundreds of children come down Washington Street though the center of town walking, riding their bikes, pushing doll carriages and motorized mini tanks. And I’m there to capture it.
It is one of my favorite days of the year, Everyone is in a great mood and the kids all get a ribbon and a tee-shirt for their participation.
I do my best to capture images from the parades in town. The faces of the people that are marching and the people that are watching.
It’s nice to see the cub scouts, brownies, matching bands … all the Townies. All the people that love the town and cherish the people that live here.
This was the Memorial Day parade. It is especially good to capture the images of those who served in the armed forces and those who are still in service marching side-by-side in the parade. You can see how they look at each other and see such different things.
