Kevin Celebrates 30 Year Class Reunion at Smith-Cotton Homecoming Parade
I know a lot of you always look forward to some of the photos I take during an event. You don’t know how much that really touches my heart. I hope you really enjoy this series. Not only because it is of the Homecoming Parade, but it is from my point of view since I am on my class reunion’s float.
This is my 30 year reunion. I am so amazed on how much stuff that has happened in my life. I know it’s hard to believe 30 years have gone by and it feels like in a flash. Because in my heart, I have that Peter Pan Syndrome. I never want to grow up. Now my body lets me know every now and then, that yes you are almost a 50 year old man.
I would have taken the many pictures of the floats like you all always like to see, but this year, I wanted to do something completely different. I know a lot of you will have my back on taking pictures of the floats, but I wanted to take pictures of all of you who attend the parades. It is you who are never seen and appreciated for attending and raising our spirits on the floats.
A lot of you listened to my Facebook post when I said to yell at me and I would get a photo of you. Wow, did the yells come! Everyone on the float was like, “What is up with this Kevin? Why are they yelling your name?” There were a couple of times I thought I was going to fall off the float from aiming my lens from left to right and back left. But I tried as hard as I could to get the pictures of all of you. It was such beautiful weather and the streets of Ohio were loaded with friends, families and followers. In my own mind I’m a celebrity. But in the public, I’m just Kevin Walker. Just like the many of you trying to live day by day. I try and take it a step further and live life on the edge and to the fullest.
Thank you all for yelling my name. I hope I got photos of as many of you that yelled. I think I got some wonderful photos of you all. Please if feel like it share the album with your friends. Kudos to all of you!
