I took this shot along the Winfield Good Old Days parade route in September. I was looking for a "unique view of the parade, not the standard shot. Then I saw the beat of a different drum. I walked along with the West Chicago Community High School marching band, and took a few action shots of the drums. I tweaked the image in Photoshop Elements to bring out the excitement of the parade. Randy Link of Winfield
