Landmark Prom

I went to my daughter's high school prom in Syracuse, New York. I took my camcorder to document the proceedings. The African American kids were doing this elaborate red carpet affair, and their families and relatives were going crazy. These kids were dressed to kill. Hundreds of pictures were taken, and hours of video were recorded. The 21st century prom is a media spectacle extraordinaire, with stretch limos, top hats and canes. But for the girls, it's still all about the dress.
