Mop up for a Mini

The Vergennes Opera House has a “Women’s Fall Foliage Ralley’ that draws vehicles of all types. Usually held on the first Saturday in October, they’ll get some 40 participants. The starting point is City Park Vergennes, then they follow the route set out winding up at a place for dinner and awards. The flag for the start of the ralley this year provided a bit of visual humor as the item was a mop. Needless to say, that bit of subtle humor wasn’t repeated the following year; a proper flag was produced for the send off. As a newspaper photographer, that type of happenings are the meat and potatoes of any beat photographer. If you miss these kinds of photos, you won’t be long on the job. Bet the competition didn’t.Mop up for a Mini Women’s Fall Foliage Ralley Vergennes City Park, Vermont 10/08/2005

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
