Tom - Beautiful and meaningful photographs. Very well done. Veteran's Day kind of had a more profound impact than usual because of a book I'm reading, "Final Salute", about the soldiers whose job it is to nofify the next of kin of those who have died in combat, and the relationships they form with the families. The vets in your photographs were definitely the fortunate ones.
Reece -- Thanks. I wanted to photograph all the vets at the parade but it was mostly organized chaos so I grabbed as many as I could. I felt humbled and honored to be able to take their portraits. Thankfully it was heavily clouded and right at dusk, so the light was perfect. These were, indeed, the fortunate ones.
Love the Vet photos, Tom! Bless 'em.
