I had an unconventional New Years this year. I had the opportunity to shoot in Washington D.C. during the week leading up to New Year’s eve, and found myself free to explore on my own terms on the day of New Years Eve. I hadn’t yet seen the Arlington National Cemetery, and the morning was shaping up to be a breathtaking scene. Thanks to all the moving pieces along this trip lining up perfectly, I spent the last day of 2013 paying my respects to the Heroes of my country, and remembering the sacrifice of all of my friends and family who have or are currently serving. It was a truly beautiful way to end the year.
