Vietnam Veteran

This is Bill. Bill served in Vietnam in the early 60's as an Air Force advance officer. I met him at a local Amusement park in Albany and immediately was struck by his pride and love for country after all these years. His chiseled face reflected a hard earlier life to me. Graciously Bill allowed me to chat with him about his war experience and photograph him as he recalled his younger years in 'Nam. He became quite reflective and I was fortunate to capture his expression. Technical: Canon SX10 IS in P mode, AWB. Post processing in Topaz Adjust in Details mode to bring out his seriousness. I chose a sepia tone reflecting his age and the age of his experience 50 years ago when he was 21. Thank you Bill, thank you for your service and letting me photograph you. Jeff
