My Father-in-law was in the British Army serving as a 2 Para, he has told me some wonderful stories of his time in the forces over the years but after a little researching myself it was clear that it was no walk in the park. Through the rigorous selection and hard training an airborne solider was expected to develop resilience, self-confidence and a fierce determination to succeed. With this in mind my family and I decided to pay a visit to the Aldershot Military festival, where I was sure that there would be a little education for my son, a few more stories to come from his grandad and hopefully a fun way to spend time with my family. Although it may seem a strange choice, my chosen lens for the day was the amazing Olympus 75mm, So with the OM-D and the family ready we set off.

We all had a great day and for different reasons it was a day that meant something special to each of us. I loved capturing the event with the Olympus 75mm and I can't wait until the next time it is mounted onto my OM-D.
