Last weekend I had the honor to be asked to shoot the Race Cam image at The Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. The event was the Army Ten Miler race — 30,000 military, friends, family, and civilians came out this beautiful morning to run 10 miles through Arlington and D.C. My job was to capture as many of them as I could in a single (and huge) image.
This is not just a photograph — it’s a interactive 360 degree view of the race start, as well as the pentagon and surrounding area, as well as the Army Parachute squad overhead. The image is made up of about 300 different frames taken over the course of a few minutes. Click on the image to see the whole view.
Special thanks to Patty and the gang the Navy Federal Credit Union for making this possible. They want to get the word out that the NFCU is not just for Navy — members of all military branches and their families are eligible to join.
Special thanks to to the gang at Fancam for inviting me and for compositing all my images into the interactive application you see here! Thanks too to Corey and the gang at Replay Photos for making it easy!
Oh, yeah… I got to drive this thing around. It’s kind of a cross between a gocart and a 3 story elevator. This one is in the ‘up’ mode. My friend Howard had his in the down mode — that’s it in the upper background. Howard gave me the lessons on how to operate this beast.
