A few weeks ago I mentioned that I would be photographing a military retirement ceremony. Well, that ceremony took place last Saturday. I finally pulled myself together tonight long enough to edit some of the images so I could post them on this blog. I did, after all, commit to having an album available on my website by next Saturday, so I figured I'd better get myself in gear. I keep thinking there were definite advantages to shooting film. ie--take the pictures, take them to the lab. Check.
Anyway, following are just a few of the images from last Saturday. The Marine, a Master Gunnery Sgt., proudly served his country for 30 years. His retirement was bittersweet. It was a beautiful ceremony and a beautiful day. (the only thing that would have made it better for me would have been blue skies--I've photographed this monument with a blue sky--it's amazing).
