My last photo from Iraq. See everyone soon.
"Camp Liberty, 4am" Canon 1D Mark III, 16-35/2.8L II, multiple exposure
Camp Liberty, originally one of Saddam's private hunting reserves, is a tiny portion of the US Army's staggering Victory Base Complex (or VBC), and one of many military bases rapidly preparing to close it's doors and remove it's troops before the [official] September 29th date for handing over the Iraq theater's closest thing to a five-star resort, housing over 50,000 US and NATO coalition troops during the height of the war. Camp Victory was originally built around the Baghdad International Airport, Saddam's palace, and the city's "Green Zone."
