Rolling Thunder 2013

Rolling Thunder is an organization to draw attention to the prisoners of war (POWs) and missing in action (MIA) service members of the U.S. wars. Their annual event, held on Sunday before Memorial Day is a slow motorcycle ride through Washington D.C., starting at the Pentagon parking lot, crossing the memorial bridge, and riding along the National Mall up to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

I'd guess that 99 percent of the motorcycles were Harley's, so believe me, it was noisy!

These are a few impressions from the 2013 event, all shot with the highly praised (by many) Sony RX1 full frame compact camera. The RX1 and I are still having a slightly difficult time with each other, but more on that later...
