It was a lot of fun getting to know these men and women who help bring food to our table and still find the time to have fun with their big toys. Some do work in the fields while others are for sheer enjoyment.
Last year the parade them was Parade For The Troops. They started at The Burlington County Fairgrounds, went through local roads in NJ past farms, homes and local towns to go past Fort Dix-McGuire Joint Base and back to the fairgrounds again. A huge circle, but I know that a lot of people really enjoyed seeing them go by.

This is me that day. It was hot, dusty, overcast with a possibility of rain. I carry two cameras, lenses, notebook, pens, business cards, sunscreen, bottle of water, hand sanitizer, and other essentials. I love using my Think Tank gear, it works the best for how I work out in the field.
My husband was curious to see the parade and shot some video of me working and the tractors using his cell phone, enjoy!
