This morning I was able to shoot one of my favorite events of the year and I must say,  the young ladies where very impressive!
I can guaranty you my High School report card didn’t look like theirs!

October 18, 2011) – The Pasadena Tournament of Roses named Drew Helen Washington as the 94th Rose Queen today.  This announcement concludes a month-long process that began with approximately 1,000 Pasadena-area young women who participated in the Tournament of Roses Royal Court tryouts.  Queen Drew was selected from the recently appointed seven-member Royal Court.  The Rose Queen and Royal Court will reign over the 2012 Tournament of Roses festivities, culminating in the 123rd Rose Parade® presented by Honda and themed Just Imagine…, and the 98th Rose Bowl Game® presented by VIZIO.   

Quote of the Day:
“Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.”
