Washington DC 2012: Marine Corps War Memorial and Air Force Memorial
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.
