In previous posts I mentioned that I like to take picture of things up close, partial photos. This is something that I started a couple of years ago at the Round Top 4th of July parade. I really like these partial pictures as I think they potray the essence of the vintage cars. Here is the collections I took this year. Hope you enjoy.
One of the fun things about the Round Top 4th of July parade is all of the equine entries. Being a retired Paint Horse breeder I love to see the horses! One of my latest passions is taking up close partial pictures of the horses as they ride by. This is the collection of my favorite photos taken this year at the parade.
Round Top has the most wonderful 4th of July parade every year. It just teams with patriotism and values and what our country is all about. We try to attend every year. This is a collection of photos I took of the floats and entry in the parade that don’t include the horse entries and the car/tractor entries. Those will be published in a different blog shortly. Check out all the RED, WHITE, AND BLUE! Round Top et all are proud to be Americans!
