Our local 4th of July celebration in Saratoga, CA

I just walked back to my house from our local park where they have an annual 4th of July celebration. This year I decided to go over there without my dog, but with my camera instead. I brought my Canon 1D X Mark II, 100-400mm lens and Canon 600 EX-RT flash. I thought I would share a handful of photos with you all. And for those of you who live in the USA or or are citizens abroad, Happy 4th of July to you all!

People come out to listen to the music and relax in the mild Northern California summer weather.

I saw Betsy Ross talking with Uncle Sam and had to get this shot.

I then asked Uncle Sam if I could get a portrait of him in the shade.

I also ran into Honest Abe and a cuter (and smaller) Betsy Ross.

I asked Betsy (Tabitha) if I could take her portrait, since she was my favorite subject at the celebration.

For a small town, they put on quite a nice celebration.

It was fun to see these guys in costume. They were not as cute as Tabitha, but...

I admire these guys for dressing up and being a part of this special day. They were also sought after by many of the attendees for portraits.

I hope you enjoyed my small view into our town's festivities.
