Remembrance | Memorial Day 2014

Today, on Memorial Day, we remember those that have served our country so courageously.  Thank you to all of the veterans – past, present and future – along with their families for their service and sacrifice so that we can continue to enjoy the freedoms of the United States of America.  I’d like to especially remember my grandfather Murray J. Cohen, a truly incredible man, for creating such a beautiful family and being a quiet and enduring inspiration.

The Flag | After Sunrise

Minutes after sunrise on the beach in Boynton Beach, FL, the lifeguard on duty posted this singular red flag in the sand.  This was part of their notification system to let beach visitors know that the water wasn’t swimmable.  I thought it was an awesome scene, almost like a moon landscape with the American Flag posted in the sand…and believe it or not, it was quite cold.  I think the temperature was in the mid 30s, and the ocean was fogging in the early morning light…and the cool colors of the ocean with the warm clouds in the distance and the starkly red flag made this a solid shot for me.
