a daily photo from joshua l. smith
Welcome to all of the visitors from The Loop. I’m thrilled to share my hobby with you, leave a comment on my Twitter if you like: @fourpointedstar
To answer a few questions: I shoot merely for fun & relaxation, but I have sold a few large prints. With the exception of the 5 family photos, each photo that is on this site is my own: capture, edit, & post. I claim no expertise, in fact I feel that this applies to my photography “If you can’t be proficient, be prolific.”
I post a photo each day, everything from Chicago skylines to insects in flight; come back in a week and there will be 7 more photos to enjoy. Be sure to check out the archives too. Enjoy.
As I toured Washington D.C. back in July of 2008, I was overwhelmed by the number of monuments to the men that had sacrificed their life to make this country free and to promote the cause of freedom around the world. I saw men from the Korean War tearing up as they stood in front of the Korean War Memorial; I watched with a profound sense of loss as grown men stood or knelt in front of the Vietnam Memorial and traced their finger across the names of friends, soldiers who never returned back to the land of the free. What a tremendous sacrifice they paid, and what a tremendous debt we owe.
