On Memorial Day we honor those who died in active military service. It is not a happy day, it is not just a day off, it is a day to honor those men and women who have died to protect our country. The local community held the annual Twinsburg Memorial Day Parade & Ceremony and I was there to capture it. See the photos at this Photo Gallery on my Photography Website. Enjoy!

The Meaning of Memorial Day
While many people associate this holiday with barbecues, parades, and the unofficial start of the summer season, it is crucial to pause and remember the true purpose behind Memorial Day.
Memorial Day is a solemn day set aside to honor and remember the men and women of the armed forces who made the ultimate sacrifice while defending the United States. It is a day to pay tribute to the brave souls who laid down their lives to protect the freedoms and liberties we hold dear.
Memorial Day serves as a reminder of the tremendous cost of war. It is an opportunity for us to pause and remember the countless individuals who never returned home to their families. Their sacrifice is a somber reminder of the toll of conflict and the dedication required to safeguard the values we cherish.
While it is important to take a moment of silence or attend memorial services on Memorial Day, true honor lies in carrying forward the values and ideals for which these brave men and women fought. Engaging in acts of service and kindness that uplift our communities can be a meaningful way to honor their memory.
Memorial Day is a time to honor and pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our country.
Today I made a quick trip to Brandywine Falls in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Enjoy!

Twinsburg vs Hathaway Brown High School Girls Basketball — OHSAA Playoff
Yesterday I attended and took photos at the Twinsburg Girls Basketball vs Hathaway Brown High School Basketball Game. I have attached some photos below and you can see the full set of photos on my photography website in this Gallery.. This was the first round of the OHSAA Playoff Games for the teams. Hathaway Brown won with a score of 46-31. Hathaway Brown is seeded as #4 and Twinsburg is seeded as #29.
The Twinsburg Team had a great season and we are all very proud of the progress they made.
The Hathaway Brown Gym is extremely dark and the lighting is uneven, worst that I have seen. It was a day game and there are windows on one end of the gym that made it even harder to shoot in. I had to double my normal ISO Setting for indoor gyms and I was concerned how the photos would turn out. But, in the end they turned out great! I think that the Canon EOS R7 Camera Body along with the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens make a great combination for sports.
