Veterans Day

In July I was working on a photography project at Cambridge American Cemetery. My shooting week was documented in this post. I was photographing the grave marker of Finis E. Harris Jr. His family lives in the United States, but right now I am living not far from the cemetery, so I made these images for them:

When it came to editing, these photos have had very minimal edits applied. The idea was to show the marker as it is. The cemetery here is a really nice one, beautiful and peaceful. The American Battle Monuments Commission manages this and several other overseas military burial sites. I’ve had the opportunity to visit a few of them. They are all really well run. If you happen to have a family member buried or memorialized at one of these sites, know that they do have a lovely final resting spot.

I was back at the Cambridge site this morning for a Veterans Day service:

  2. Amy, thank you for your and your daughter’s thoughtfulness and care as you followed up on my request to visit Finis’ grave. You served as an extension of our family, who to our knowledge has never been able to visit his or his brother’s grave. Perry Rowe Harris was killed in action at Leyte in the Philippines a month prior to Finis. He was buried at the American Cemetery in Manila.

    Thanks, again, and hers is the link to my blog post https://ruraliowapastor.com/2019/11/11/finis-who-finished-his-course/, including two of your photos. I appreciate them!
