Of course you always have the fire trucks...

As the truck pulled away, I couldn't resist one more shot of Old Glory on the back of the truck.

Now, the darn truck was moving a lot faster than I expected it to in a parade. I would much rather had a crisper shot, but I still liked the color and pattern created by the hoses here. I will remember next time to push the ISO a little higher next time. This is the old film habits creeping back in again. Shoot low ISO for color and detail, but sacrifice speed.

As the first truck began to pass, I noticed the flag on the back and immediately I was reminded of 9/11 and the heroic people of that day. It definitely makes you appreciative of those wonderful people.
