At the posting of this image, I am attending our locality’s Annual Memorial Day Program.
Participation in this program is one of my most favorite civic activities. I’m honored to serve as photographer and online PR person.
Enjoy these photos from our 2014 program and I’ll share a few from this year’s event soon.
Do you know about the National Moment of Remembrance? As Americans, we are encouraged to pause at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation.
Like I mentioned on facebook, the second shot is just the best. Thank you for this memorial.
Beautiful shots Laurie 😀 I love the second shot where you caught the cartridge in mid air.
Did not know about the National Moment of Remembrance. Will do.
I’m impressed that you caught those shells!
Well captured 🙂
Radford should be very proud of their contributions to honor and respect.
I love both photos. the second shot had a lot of action.
Great photos–you really are good at this!!
Thank you, Laurie. We all need never forget what some have suffered in war. Love, Amy
Oh, my, Laurie, these are beautiful photos. I’m always slack-jawed with awe at your estimable talent.
And Memorial Day is a very special day to me from as long ago as I can recall. A parade in our little hometown village celebrating and honoring our service men and women and then a truly moving service at the local cemetery with a moving speech, the rifle works and taps in the distance. I always left humbled and I miss that hometown day with all my heart.
I hope yours was warm and memorable.
nice mood 🙂
I’m always inspired by your big heart and the capacity for taking on so many projects in your community. You’re a really special girl and your community surely knows it. Bravo LB. The American flag is always front and centre and I think that’s wonderful. Love that photo. I wouldn’t consider Canadians less patriotic really, just less apt to display pride in a big way. Jim and I have a giant Canadian Flag, In the past, we’ve display it on July 1st on our front door (Canada Day). Do you have a flag hanging on the house? I see that a lot when driving thru America. I’m sure the memories of the times are mixed with plenty of sadness for many seniors or now grown children of that era. Now, with those still serving in Iraq there’s new service to remember. I wonder if there’ll ever be a day when great loss won’t be part of the equation? xo ❤ k
Well done Laurie!
Love the flag picture, Laurie, but catching that spent bullet mid-air? I can just hear the echoes of the fired shot. Brilliant images to capture the day.
