Baseball, Hot Dogs....

October 2007

There's a picture like this tucked inside of every parade, a real Norman Rockwell moment. You just have to be on the right side of the fire truck in order to capture it.

This scene was too perfect, and I only saw it about with about twenty seconds to act. The line of fire trucks was long, and each of them was wailing its own distinctive siren. I glanced to the left and saw this boy leaning out of the window of the upcoming truck. I knew I had a good shot when I saw the flag being held with the oversized gloves. I quickly framed and focused my camera on the side of the truck. As the window came into the frame, he leaned a bit towards me, I composed the shot and squeezed off one exposure.
