The band's public image

Everybody loves a marching band. The tuba player was carrying along this image of his band as he marched down St. Charles Avenue last Mardi Gras.

I never did the marching band thing in school but my wife did -- I never thought how hard it was to march 8 or 10 miles in stuffy clothes in the heat, or in a cold blowing wind. I guess if you haven't done it, you can't appreciate the dedication it takes.

Great shot, Steve!
I always wanted to be in the band, but I played piano... It would have been hard to march and push that thing!!

Wow! I couldn't figure it out until I read your comments -- and then I felt like an idiot! It's so obvious! :)

Good eye in catching the reflection of the band in the tuba. Like lessie, I didn't know what it was till I read what you said.

That is a wonderful view from the Tuba!! I never marched in a band, but I was the High School Mascot and had to wear a hot "Bulldog" outfit in parades.

Annie said...

How did you do that? Through a hubcap? No, through a tuba! Who would have guessed.

Tara said...

Very original shot!

Great shot. Very unique. I marched in the band all through high school. Its wearing, challanging and fun too.

Steve, this is a clever shot! It is a bit mysterious at first. I had no idea what is was until I read your commentary. Then it was crystal clear. Very cool!!

Wow Steve, great picture. Always loved to see and ear tubas; just wonder how can someone carry it and play...
