After riding my new Fuji Nevada mountain bike to the Edmond Liberty Fest Independence Day Parade with my Toyo VX-125 film camera loaded into my bicycle panniers, I found a spot across from UCO clock tower to capture this photo on Kodak TMAX-100 black and white film. It is always difficult to frame these photos just right. I had to wait for the right moment to capture the horses, but the riders turned to look at something across the road right before I snapped the shutter. Oh well, if I wanted to better capture the action I would shoot with a DSLR or maybe my Pentax 6×7 film camera.
