67 Years Later

- Sixty-seven years ago today my father's unit, Company C of the 13th Infantry Regiment, 8th Infantry Division, United Sate Army went ashore at Normandy France to take part in the invasion of Europe during WWII. My father was 17 years old at the time and would celebrate his 18th birthday five weeks later on August 15th near Rennes France after fighting through the hedgerows. By the following Spring he was a hardened combat veteran wounded five times and earning two Bronze Stars. He fought through the longest single battle in U S Army history in the Hürtgen Forest between Belgium and Germany. This photo of the Washington Monument taken from the Wold War II Memorial is dedicated SFC Edward H. Sullivan, a member of the "Greatest Generation". Canon 7D, 1/800 sec @ f/11.0, ISO 400, 70mm focal length.

236 - Cooper Jack

From 365 Project
Parked next to this Mini Cooper with the these Union Jack covers on the side and rear view mirrors. I think Coopers now have the most after market accessories of any car. It seems that everyone who has one has tricked it up. In the old days the original VW Beetle was king of the accessories, I should know. Wish I still had that 1970 Bug. Canon G10, 1/800 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 100, 150mm equivalent focal length.
