My apologies for no May flowers or Mother’s Day pictures here this week. I spent my Mother’s Day weekend at the Indiana State Band contest.
Our school won for the third year in a row, and my boy–a senior–got to be one of the two representatives to receive the award…
…and drink the ceremonial milk (Contest sponsored by Indiana Dairy Farmers). It’s an Indiana thing–the winner of the Indy 500 also drinks milk in the winner’s circle.
Photographically events like this are a huge challenge for me. And I have a hard drive of fuzzy, grainy, dark pictures to show for my efforts. The red and blue stage lights, although they did add some fun effects in certain shots, were also a challenge. I finally gave up on color and just went with black & white.
