Favorite Photo, May 26

U.S. Flag, Parade
U.S. Flag, Memorial Day Parade, Worthington Ohio. May 26, 2014.

When I saw this flag comping down the street, I knew what I needed to do. My experience as a newspaper photographer taught me to look for unusual angles and to be bold enough to get in the right spot.

So I ran out in the middle of the street and lay down in the street. The lead flag carriers looked a bit uncertain so I gestured for them to just walk right over me. They smiled and they did. I clicked several photos as the flag passed over me. This is my favorite of those flag photos, my favorite of the parade, and my favorite photo for May 26. It is also one of my all time favorite parade photos.
