While sitting working on some images for a client I was disrupted by the hum of a helicopter in the distance. Thinking nothing of it, I continued to work, until I heard another..and another..and another. So I decided to put on the neighbourhood watch walkie-talkie. I then found out the helicopters were the US Marine Corps, and they were checking out the area for when Barack Obama comes to visit on Sunday, and that they were busy landing on the sports fields, 5 minutes away. So I jumped in the car, camera on the passenger seat, and headed for the sports fields!
Below is a selection of photos of the US Marine Corps in action that I managed to get. What an experience!
