Just outside of Topeka, KS is the small community of Overbrook. The American Legion Post located here has agreed to let me use their UH-1 Huey helicopter on one of my photo-shoots. This will be the third image in the Veteran’s Burdens series and will focus on what our service members left behind in Vietnam, of themselves and the friends made and lost. After spending about an hour there taking test shots and looking at angles, it was time to pack everything up and head to Topeka.
We headed west out Highway 56 but instead of taking 75 north, we took a side road that ran parallel to it. Glad we did because just south of Topeka we came across a small park called Wakarusa Park that offered some good photo opportunities and a nice break of sitting in the car.
