Veterans Day Parade

The Downtown Veterans Day Parade is always a fun and moving event to see. I used to march in it every year when I was in high school (band nerd), but the poignance of the event has only dawned on me as an adult. Vets of all ages watch and march in this parade, and the celebration is a nice token of appreciation for their sacrifices.

For more from the parade, check out the slideshow here.

Trolley Ride

Trolley photographs will always be taken by tourists and local Memphians alike but none give you quite the experience as an actual video of the trolley ride itself. Memphis photographer Jason Lee created a video that really is the sum of amazing moving photographs. Posted are some stand alone stills from the video at the bottom. Watch it with the sound on and you'll catch the magical quality that all kids seem to be entranced by.

See more work from Jason here. He also works as a 3-d artist with Paradigm Marketing & Creative.
