Faces of Memorial Day in Washington DC

I had a field day with my camera on Monday along the parade route on Constitution Ave. I’ve found that going to the parade is one of the only ways that I can properly appreciate the significance and weight of Memorial Day. 

My neighbor and four time Purple Heart Ace Rosner used to drive his WWI Jeep in this parade, but he passed away earlier this year.

There are many things to love about DC, but the setting and backdrop here makes universal things like parades and fireworks, which probably take place in every other town across America, seem that much more impressive, stately, and unique.

Here are my favorite 30 shots from the parade — click slideshow / full screen mode.

And a sneak preview:
