A few from the yashica from around five weeks back. We love summertime. And we love my brother.
Despite him being younger and a little shorter than me, I look up to him. I talked to him about the first photo and how it really inspired me; to possibly do a series about Marines after the war. I feel like this photo captures....something; I can't really place it but I guess for me it captures something a little more personal. A feeling of pride that my little brother is a Marine, a veteran and maintained secure forces through both tours while making Sgt rank in the process. You deserve that beer, devil dog.
