87-year-old Fritz is a WWII Navy veteran and former Commander who helped protect the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay when the Japanese surrendered - but now he faces an even bigger battle...one with Alzheimer's.

-------------------------

This past September, I fulfilled a longtime dream of participating in the Missouri Photo Workshops. MPW is one of the oldest photojournalism workshops in existence.

Paying tribute to the great photographers of the Farm Services Administration - like Dorthea Lange, Walker Evans and Russell Lee - MPW chooses one small town in Missouri to photograph every year.

Students are then given a week to find a story and document it. You are limited to 400 JPEG frames the entire week and can't edit or delete.

It was an amazing experience, and one that I will never forget. It was also extremely challenging, pushing me in ways I never thought possible.

I encourage any Nikonians (from anywhere in the world) who are seriously interested in photojournalism, street photography and/or environmental portraiture to consider applying.

If you'd like to read more about my experience and MPW, check out my latest blog post: http://danielstainer.wordpress.com
