giving an image some recognition.

Sometimes you get great shots but wasn’t able to get all the names. This particular photo I took because Hayden Frank, 11, on the right (had his name but couldn’t find the other two kids) had a posture and expression — in context with the rest of the image — reminiscent of classic war photography. Which is why I think it’s such a great photo, especially with it of kids re-enacting soldiers! Too bad it couldn’t run in the Missourian.
