Roger, known as rogleale on the Digital Photography Now forum and gallery - is our featured photographer on the DPNow Picture of the Day this Wednesday. Roger lives in the Brittany region of France and on 15th August photographically recorded the traditional annual holiday celebrations of that date. August 15th, Assumption day, is a national holiday in France, and Roger explains it is also known locally as,simply, Quinze, which is the French for the number '15'. I'm very impressed that younger generations of French people are still enthusiastic about preserving an old tradition, as witnessed by Roger's pictures. I especially like the shot that has been selected for today's POTD. The expressions of the three here are a delight.
