We have a “dogwood festival parade” in Charlottesville. I love a parade. People in the street. Music.

Florettes Majorettes, Richmond, VA

A communal celebration, in the daylight. The nearest we get in the Old Dominion to a second line.

Bring you flag, your dog, your children your vehicle

Woody Berry, the man inside the Lion

I saw a former work colleague getting ready with the lion suit. Woody has been a Lion’s Club member for 32 years.

Great anticipation rules. Wearing the tiara.

Market Street

A perfect day for a parade, cool temperatures, California quality light.


The main excitement was some vapor and engine noise from a biking contingent. Alas, breaking traction is frowned upon in the Old Dominion.

I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.
