Bastille Day Parade

I took this shot with a point and shoot several years ago during the Bastille Day parade in Paris. Our parades have high school marching bands, baton twirlers, clowns and Shriners on minibikes. This one featured mobile missle launchers, tanks, Mirage jets streaming the tricolors down the Champs Elysees and this magnificent cavalry squadron all demonstrating the military might of the French nation. Note the checker patterned powdered rumps of the horses.
