My family and I went to the tractor parade in Charlotte yesterday. It was the 10th annual event, held on the tenth day of the tenth month. It delivered, as usual, even if it did start more than an hour after the start time. But so it is.
I did not have a good spot to stand this time. We dithered a bit before things got started so, while the children were right up there next to the road, I stood behind some chairs that someone had set up and left empty the whole time. I had a really tall guy uphill from me, in the direction the tractors were coming from. Plus, there were just simply people all around. So I changed my focus. Instead of taking pictures of the tractors, I took pictures of the people driving the tractors. Here is a gallery of some of those portraits.
