The Ultimate Miami Photography Club Since 1977
Today is Memorial Day in the United States, and our offices are closed as we honor and remember those who gave their lives in service to our country. This post is dedicated each year to the memory of David Leimbach (shown above; the brother of our dear friend and colleague Jeff Leimbach), who died 15 years ago in combat in Afghanistan.

Here’s wishing you all a safe, happy, and healthy Memorial Day. -Scott The post A DAY TO HONOR OUR NATION’S FALLEN SOLDIERS appeared first on Lightroom Killer Tips....
