Veteran’s Day Parade Through the Photographers Eyes

November 11, 2012

Written by Lois Jones

Veterans DayClarksville, TN – When I woke up this morning, I had forgotten that the Veteran’s Day parade was being held today. You see, I teach beginning digital photography for the Community School of the Arts (CSA) on Saturday mornings, and as I was nearing Austin Peay, I saw that 8th Street and College Streets were blocked and still didn’t realize what was going on. I had to detour to get to my class and so did all of my students.

When we got to the classroom we discussed the parade and what a fabulous learning experience it would be for the class. Everyone grabbed their cameras and to the parade we went. All we had to do was walk outside the classroom and we were at the parade with a perfect spot to watch.
