Artist's Description

TODAY, MAY 25, 2009, I WENT UP TO DIXON CALIFORNIA TO HONOR THE AMERICAN VETERANS WHO GAVE ALL. I WALKED AROUND AND TOOK ABOUT 65 OR SO PHOTOS, OVERALL, AND JUST AS I HAPPENED TO TURN TO THE NORTH, I NOTICED A HELICOPTER TAKING A TURN TO OUR DIRECTION. SO I FIGURED THAT IT MUST BE A “HELICOPTER FLYOVER” FOR THE SERVICES, AND IT WAS. THE COPTER FLEW QUITE CLOSE TO THE GROUND AND JUST ABOUT RIGHT STRAIGHT OVER MY HEAD. SO, I TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE HELICOPTERS POSITION IN RELATIONS TO MY CAMERA AND STARTED PUSHING THE CAMERA SHUTTER. I GOT SEVERAL REAL GOOD SHOTS, BUT THIS ONE LOOKED THE CLOSEST, SO IT IS MY CHOICE FOR MY ADDITION TO THE BUBBLE. I TOOK THIS IMAGE WITH MY CANON EOS DIGITAL REBEL 300D WITH MY 75-300MM TELEPHOTO AF MACRO LENS. THE FOCAL LENGTH ON THIS SHOT WAS ONLY SET AT ABOUT 150MM, THAT’S HOW CLOSE HE WAS OVER MY HEAD. I THANK GOD FOR THE SOLDIERS THAT HAVE GIVEN ALL FOR MY RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS. REMEMBER FOR ALL TIME, “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE”. ALL THE MILITARY FAMILIES PAY A HEAVY PRICE FOR IT. AS DID ANYONE WHO LOST A FAMILY MEMBER TO THE TERRORISTS
