General Greene

"U.S. Army soldiers carry the flag-draped transfer case containing the remains of U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Harold J. Greene during a dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base on August 7, 2014 in Dover, Delaware."

Covering a dignified transfer is never easy and these type of stories always need to be told.

I approached this dignified transfer the same way I always cover them - with respect for our fallen and wanting to grab the attention of the viewer.

This time I wanted to change my viewpoint and I decided to silhouette my wider camera, which was a remote camera on the ground, for a graphic picture that no one else was photographing that day.

In the end, it was eye-catching during a solemn moment in our world - and if that makes someone stop and pause for a second more, so that understand what is happening in our world, than I've done my job.
