A fife and drum brigade marched in the Martha’s Vineyard Island parade on the Fourth of July. This piper led the way in his red and white stripped shirt.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
