This week’s photo challenge theme at i heart faces is “over my head” (by the way they are using this image as the as the post header, so I am beyond humbled). As soon as I heard the theme I thought about this image that I took at our city’s Independence Day Parade. The three soldiers you see marching are part of the Young Marine program at our local base. I was so struck by the center boy’s expression and the way he caught my camera’s gaze at the right second (or did I catch his?). He looks impossibly young, but is barely younger than many of the actual Marines I see all over town. There is more than a hat that hangs over this boy soldier’s head. And it for those less-literal reasons, I wanted to use this as my entry.
Please see what else is over everyone’s head by visiting i heart faces, below.
