Small-Town Parade


Johnson, Washington

July 4, 20169. Johnson parade-007122.6 mm: ISO 200: f/14: 1/60 sec.

We were in Pullman, Washington for the 4th of July so we took the family to the tiny town of Johnson for a parade.  The town is absolutely tiny.  It had about four roads of houses and a couple farms, but about two time the population of the town showed up for the parade.

In this image, I really wanted to convey the farm-town feel of the people.  I placed my focus on the foreground wheat to throw all the people slightly out of focus.  I kept the aperture shut down so that the people were still recognizable and the hills in the background weren’t just blobs.
