Field of Honor

During the week of Memorial Day, Merced College places flags on the front lawn of the campus. Each flag is dedicated to military personnel, firefighters, and police officers who have either served, are serving, or have passed in the line of duty. I have never actually went out to look at them up close, but this year I decided to. I found the flags to be even more beautiful up close. Enjoy!

Normal scenario: You see something interesting to photograph. You pick up your camera and move it to your face where you look through the viewfinder to frame your shot. This time I challenge you to photograph from at least three feet higher that you normally do. Ansel Adams, the famous American landscape photographer often photographed from a platform that was mounted on top of his car. You might want to photograph from the back of a pick-up truck, get a ladder or even use a quadcopter with a camera. As always, have fun with this exercise.

After the rain today I went out to photograph at the so called bike path at Rahilly park in Merced. Enjoy the image and keep on photographing!
