Stripling Warrior March, 2012
The Bountiful Days of '47 parade is an annual favorite, celebrating the town's pioneer heritage a few weeks after the 4th of July. In the summer of 2012, the parade's final entry was a re-creation of a story from the Book of Mormon, documenting the military service of 2,000 stripling warriors. For anyone who has felt that parades have swung too far towards local businesses throwing taffy to greedy kids in recent years, the march was a welcome change of pace. To get this shot, I convinced one of the public address announcers to let me climb up on his scaffold, where I could get a better angle on the moment.
