OK, right off, I bet you can tell this isn’t like my regular posts. Well, you’re right.
Things have been a bit crazy around here. Still smiling from the awesome workshop in Vermont. I’m currently putting together four more workshops (soon to be announced) for 2013.
I have a couple new eBooks on the way and lots more.
But what’s really taking up my time today, in a good way, are World War II veterans. If you recall, this time last year, I was given the opportunity to fly along and document the day.
Guess what? They asked me back!
Today, I will be volunteering my time again to help record this day forever for these American Heroes and their families. We will be going from 3am until probably 11 or midnight, and there will be nothing but smiles and possibly a few choked up moments in between.
The amazing thing is that our little community has raised $170,000 to make this one day possible for our veterans. We will be popping in and out of DC on two private Boeing 737s. By the way, this will be the first time ever that our little airport has seen two 737s at the same time.No other community in the United States has put together an Honor Flight program to match the efforts and success we’ve seen right here.
It truly is an honor for me to be able to ride with this elite group and to be honest, I’m a bit nervous. I want to make the best images possible for these guys, so I hope you can excuse my lack of a formal post this week.
I will return next week with an update for you on this Honor Flight and I have many more photography tips to share as well.
If you’re interested, I’m going to try to post images from Washington DC, as we proceed throughout the day.
Stay tuned and happy shooting!
