    Yesterday was our national day in Luxemburg. Every year there is this military parade held in the city of Luxemburg, with high ranking politicians of Luxemburg and the Grand-duc and his family attending....

    Here are some random shots...


    Thank you for looking!

    Spako, you knack to capture atmosphere in your photos is enormous and comes out in each and every photo of events that you take.
    And you could take a pic of Jean-Claude Juncker just so?
    When I only know him from television?
    Wow.
    I like the fire men in a row very much but cannot say "best of all" because they are all so good!

    Yes she is, julius :)

    Thank you for the nice comments!

    I think it's not such a big deal here in Luxemburg to get close to politicians, it's a very small country and even the grand duc is spotted regularly among us normal people when he's hanging around with his family...

    I like 10. Great potential. 9 also interested me alot, to the extent that I actually checked your national flag in wiki afterwards. 6, really a vivid portrait.

    Is Luxemburg a constitutional duchy even today? Sorry for my ignorance of your country..

    Thanks for your comments!!


    @Tsienni,

    Yes, lux is a constitutional "Grand-Duchy", we got the "grand" when our country's borders were reduced to its actual size. :)
