The colonel

Taken at the Fall Fest parade in Sister Bay, Wisconsin last October. This gentleman was the grand marshall of the parade. As his military jeep approached, someone behind me referred to him simply as "the colonel."


As his jeep passed, I had my camera trained on him and was ready to shoot when someone, perhaps the same person as before, called out to him. The colonel turned and I snapped to capture a mixture of expressions - searching, finding and recognition with the faintest hint of a smile beginning to emerge.


I'm guessing that the green beret, decorations and lines on his face would provide an interesting story.
