2010 Atlanta Veterans Day Events

My apologies to all for the length of time it has taken me to get this done.  I took the equivalent of 42 rolls of 24-exposure film (1,000 photographs) this year and have spent more than a week of 14-hour days processing all of the shots in Photoshop and editing them down to make a presentation which would capture the spirit of the parade, which I love.  I am a veteran myself and look forward all year to being able to spend the day in the company of men and women who have made sacrifices for their country and the friends and family who support them.  I am so proud that patriots still exist and are passing the torch. 

These images have been greatly reduced in file size, which affects the quality of the images.  When you click on one of the images or links, below, you will be downloading a fairly large PDF file.  If you download all of the attachments, they will take up 28.7 MB of disc space. 

I am working on another web site, from which interested parties may purchase prints of the images in full resolution and books and discs of this year's pictures, with a  percentage of the proceeds benefitting the Georgia Veterans  Day Parade Association of Atlanta, Inc.

This year's Grand Marshall was well-known actor and veteran,  Gunnery Sergeant R. Lee Ermey, USMC (Ret.).  Although perhaps best known for his role as Gunnery Sergeant Hartman in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, people really love his Geico commercial.  Everyone expected him to be funny, but I was pleasantly surprised to find him to be so nice to people.  I've dealt with minor and major celebrities over the years and it is rare to find one who is so willing to pose for pictures and give autographs to fans.  He's a movie star in my book.  I would be remiss if I did not post a link to a cause Mr. Ermey is very passionate about, The Marine Corps Identity Cause.  Semper Fi, Gunny.

I hope you enjoy the pictures.
