GOPR3419Mr. Horne has very nice crowd shots on his blog. Check them out!

I captured a few just as the observers were dispersing.

Then there is the GoPro Hero Camera that almost got run over. No serious damage, but the case lens cover was scratched and my little tripod lost a leg. The leg snapped back in. The lens cover will have to be replaced. The Hero survived!

It is good I had 3 cameras with me for this shoot. I hope to go for it again tomorrow, using my 35mm DSLR Camera exclusively, providing I can get a replacement battery today. Thanks for following. –jim

First, thanks to our veterans for their service to this [USA] country. Today, we had lots of sunrise watchers. Mr. Horne’s announcements have been very effective. I did not count; but, I’d estimate around 60 people being there to witness the twice in a year event. Thanks to the Fayetteville Observer and Mr. Horne for sharing this event with the community. I see our crowd estimates are close.

Please check his pictures in the Backyard Universe.

A photographic challenge ~ The Fayetteville Market House, Veterans Day 2010 ~ from the Master

johnnyhorneInspired by the photographic work of Mr. Johnny Horne, photo editor, Fayetteville Observer and author Backyard Universe, I departed for downtown Fayetteville at 6:25 a.m. to give the sunrise photo opt my 3rd go. The sun will be lower in the sky as it passes over Person Street and peers through the Market House to photographers on Hay Street seeking the ultimate keeper—”a Johnny Horne like” photo of a magnificent sunrise.

In preparation, I captured these on Tuesday and these Wednesday morning. What will I get today???

 

This is the challenge we see as try for perfection or close there to.
