I asked permission to take this photo, and the soldier was friendly enough and amenable. I later sent him a digital image of the photo for his use. Overall I like the photo and it was fun to shoot. Good enough for me.
Once again this was taken with my Toyo View VX-125 large-format film camera with a Nikkor-W 210mm F5.6 lens on Ilford Delta Pro 100 film that was processed with Kodak D76 developer.
