This is a composite of several images along with some digital manipulation.

The sailor is my father who served in the Korean War and World War II. He served on the naval ship shown in the image. He didn’t like to talk about his experiences because it caused too much pain. He, lilke many others who have served, paid a price for our freedom. Never forget what they gave up.

I am happy to share my vision with you and I hope that it touches you in some small way.
