Town Crier PhotoBomb

Project-A Year oin Photographs:Town Crier PhotoBomb by SG Atkinson,
Since this is the final Monday of 2014, I decided to select one of my favorite shots from 2014 for this week’s photo.

This is from the annual Chestertown Tea Party Parade during Memorial Day weekend. The Town Crier always leads the parade, followed by the Kent County Sheriff’s Honor Guard. While this shot appears as if the Town Crier photobombed the Honor Guard, and even though in a way he did, this is just a shot of the beginning of the parade. But I do like the idea of him doing a photobomb.

Dunk Excites

Kent County High played their arch rivals Queen Anne’s High on December 16. Kent took an early lead, but was held in check for the 2nd half of the first quarter to fall behind. Close to the end of the half a dunk by Kent’s Manny Camper excited the home crowd. While it took until near the end of the game for Kent County to make a complete comeback, they did win the game.

The first snow of the season fell on December 11, 2014. It wasn’t much, just a small dusting that lasted only a few hours.
