I had the privilege of photographing a group of WWII veterans recounting stories from their recent return trip to Normandy beach and Iwo Jima. It was an honor just being in their presence. I only wish I would have had more time to talk to them one-on-one. Also in attendance were business tycoon T. Boone Pickens and legendary Dallas real estate mogul Ebby Halliday (pictured at left in 2nd photo), who is 102-years-old!
When we lived in San Antonio, I worked for the after school program of North East Independent School District. Three times a year, ever since we left San Antonio, I design the cover of their community education course catalog. Some times I shoot a photo for it, other times I just use photos I already have. I shot this one last week. It came together so quickly thanks to the flexibility of J.P. Mercier and Genevieve Homza. The graphic design is something different, and I kind of like it.

We met this friendly fellow named David on July 4, 2013 while camping at the Linville Falls Campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Linville, NC. He was cycling the parkway for the 16th time. Many more photos from the family vacation may be found at the McWhorter Family Blog if you are interested.
