I figured that this was the closest category that was suitable for this... I hope you guys don't mind... I'm sorry I made a mistake, if this was not the spot for this. I'm an army wife and an army brat, first and foremost. Having lived my entire life on bases, I'm sure I'll die on one. A tradition in Canada is November 11th being Remembrance day, much like the American's Veteran's Day. There is only one military cemetery in Canada and I had the opportunity to be at it this past Remembrance day parade in Beachwood Cemetery, Ottawa. In 2006, my father's and husband's regiment, 2CER got hit bad in Afghanistan. It was a very painful time. A beloved friend and a good man died in an IED attack. We gathered to pay our respects to him. His squad was there as well as his fiance and I was privileged enough to capture such a moment-- it was a humbling experience. I wish I could have been better, to capture the moment better than I had. I was the only one with a camera and while I was surruptiously snapping shots, hoping not to invade on this private moment yet I was eager to capture it. I was pulled aside by an officer and asked to pick out some of the best photos so they could frame them and hang them in their office along with the small memorial they built for their fallen comrade. Now... I'm scared. I don't think my shots turned out good. They do need to be touched up, I know that... but I'm not sure which one to pick. What do you guys think? These next ones I was really sad because I liked them, but they were crooked. It was getting so cold out that my hands were going numb. It was -5 C and I'd been out in the wind without gloves or a hat for around 2 hours by then. Unfortunately, I won't be showing these but it goes to show what happens when you don't wear your hat and mittens on a cool day.
