“Defend Our Flag” March, Lawrence, KS

I arrived at South Park as marchers had completed their first lap of downtown and I began photographing as they congratulated one another on a successful morning. A country song I didn’t recognize blared remarkably loud on a red, handheld Bluetooth speaker. As I began to shoot I asked, “Is this Bocephus?” which crinkled a few brows. “Nah, man! C’mon, this is Merle Haggard!” It was an awkward start to what would be an
awkward day.
