raptor fest
Posted: June 19, 2016
Each year on Father's Day, a family event is held at the Teton Raptor Center. I try to attend every year as it gives me the opportunity to take some photos of the raptors on display.

The tradition of face painting for kids makes for some great photos as well.

When I left the event, I decided to drive Spring Gulch Road to at least scout for future locations. I found one and took a photo. I would like to go back under less contrasty lighting and retake the photo.

We started out with a tour of the Clayton Fire House. The kids got a chance to have their photos taken on the equipment. Afterwards we all went to Imo's for pizza and birthday cake.

Note: I used the Canon 135 f/2 lens for these photos.

Victor Fourth of July Parade 
Posted: July 4, 2015
Today was the annual Fourth of July Parade held in Victor Idaho.

There were a lot of parade participants as well as spectators. There were marchers, horses, old cars, local activity groups and merchants in the parade. The oldest resident in the valley was also featured and got a great ovation from the spectators.

It seems everyone had a good time especially the kids. They scrambled to pick up candy being thrown by folks on the floats.
