Veteran's Day

As you probably well know by now I am very patriotic. I knew that the Veteran's Cemetery put thousands of flags on the graves today so I really wanted to go over there and take pictures.
It really is awe inspiring to go there and see the flags and the memorials. I am always filled with a sense of peace and humbleness when I am there. I think it has to be one of my favorite places to go. I know that sounds weird.
I met this awesome Marine. His name was Ralph. I really enjoyed talking to him.I got to talk to him for awhile and learned so much. I think I've made a new friend! :)

I am a professional photographer and I do believe you have some natural talent in this area. I encourage you to continue to take photography courses and to continue to practice. Your work will get better and better. One word of advice for you.I think you have a natural gift for journalistic type photography as a lot of your photos are serious or solemn in nature (like your veterans day pics) and also you have taken some great nature shots. To be honest, the name "cheekie monkey photography" really doesn't suit the photos that you take. I also find that it takes away from the credibility of some of your best shots (eg. American flag shots). Have you considered having two different names for your business? Cheekie Monkey is perfect for photos of families, childrena and pets though.
