SILENT ON THE FOURTH…

I took over 300 photos of our Fourth of July Parade in Friday Harbor… lots of cars, kids and fellow islanders acting silly and having fun.  The most interesting photo I took, was of this young man marching in the French Camp contingent.  When he saw me snapping his way, he went into Mime Mode.  He might live on one of our islands… maybe I’ll  meet him someday.  He certainly looked and acted the perfect mime.

French Camp is a summer camp for kids, revolving around French Culture, held on Canoe Island in the San Juan Islands.   http://www.canoeisland.org/

Look far down the right side and you can see the Mime…

There he is…

I first published this on my Photolog – TedBook’s Daily Pics – on July 4th.  Check out my PhotoLog at… http://tedbooksdailypics.com/ for photos of The Great Pacific Northwest, and anywhere else the staff photographer travels.  He will soon be high up in the Sequoia National Forrest in California… sending dispatches daily.
