It’s estimated that 10,000 people attended the rally.
Below are some of our images from the event held at Ida Lee Park near sunset.

Awards at The Edge Photography Studio

The Edge Photographers Don Harper and David Kay reported recent awards in several photo competitions both local and international.

The Waterford Foundation Art & Photography Exhibition based in Waterford Virginia was held this weekend October 3rd, 4th and 5th. Edge Photographer David Kay submitted two entries including “Honor” which took first place in the Photojournalistic category and his artistic rendition of “Southern Swamp” third place in the “Nature” category. “Honor” is representative of the body of work these two photographers have been creating at Arlington National Cemetery during memorial services they’ve been photographing for many families. More of their work from ANC may be viewed at the website The Arlington Photographer. There are also open Internet galleries at The Edge Galleries related to the Old Guard (3rd U.S. Infantry) and different military service honor guards and bands including the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines.

Don Harper is an international member of the British Professional Photographers Association and the Society for Wedding and Portrait Photographers. Five entries in the latest competition won one Gold, one Silver and three Bronze awards. The gold award winning image “It’s Time” was selected for promoting the 2008 Virginia Polo season at Great Meadow in Warrenton. The silver award is a contemporary bridal portrait.
