Two events here, Veterans Day and Pearl Harbor Day, but I think the themes are similar enough to combine. I went in super tight on both the Tuskegee Airman and the Pearl Harbor vet, and later cropped them even closer.I wanted to exclude almost everything from the frames except their faces, and hopefully express an emotional reflection on their service, almost literally in the case of the man with glasses. This is shooting living history here, they won't be around in a few years, so the responsibility is really added.
