  • WWII veteran reminsces on military service

    At 73 years old, the fabric is worn and stained in some places. The cap was reclaimed after some pilot left it behind. The blouse was tailored and shortened at the bottom to be a more stylish Eisenhower jacket. The pants were reissued with a 36-inch waist, instead of 38. And the jump boots are gone altogether.

    George Faust, a 90-year-old World War II veteran, stood at attention in his living room, wearing what is more or less his original uniform from 1943. Both the uniform and the man wearing it are in relatively good condition.

    Morgan Wolfers’ picture of a spotted tiger moth and its pearl-like eggs is the kind of image you expect from a seasoned photographer: clean, micro-focused, incredibly detailed.

    But the image betrays both an illusion of size and years of experience.

    At 10 years old, the Conifer youth has accomplished what some photographers might only dream of: His work is on display at the Washington, D.C., home of Vice President Joe Biden.
