The 70th Anniversary of Iwo Jima

Iwo Jima

Photographing the war memorials in and around Washington, DC is one of my favorite things to do. They are incredibly reflective spots and photographing them forces you to spend more time, and give greater attention, than you would on a normal visit. When I arrived at the Marine...
