Washington DC 2012: Marine Memorial and Air Force Memorial

Washington DC Tours

The next two stops on our tour were the Marine Corps War Memorial and the Air Force Memorial.  The left hand page showcases the Marine Corps War Memorial.  I used a circle cutter to cut the two pictures that are circles and their borders.

The right hand page showcases two photographs that I took of the Air Force Memorial.   There is a silver line that I drew diagonally across the page to represent the vapor trail that an airplane leaves in its wake.

I bordered all the pictures in this spread in black – first to help contribute to the solemnity of these memorial sites, and second to help tie the two pages together.

While I took many more pictures of our family at these locations, I felt that it was important to portray the sacrifice of the fallen, rather than to show off our family.  As we look back on these pages, they bring a sense of seriousness, but also allow us to remember our time there.

  1. Love how you displayed your photos. The Marine Corps Was Memorial is a must see in Washington D.C. While I was there I photographed and posted all the war memorials and monument in D.C. on the National Mall. Thank you for the pingback and listing my post.

    BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
