A salute to our local police department for their tireless efforts through these trying and difficult times!
A couple of years ago, we took pictures of a few police officers, while they were off duty, in order to combine them with old pictures of past police officers that we found at the LSUS Archives. We blended the old and the new photos together as part of a Twin Blends “Heroes Then and Now” video project in order to honor first responders. That video, as well as hundreds of other videos and pictures, can be found on our Twin Blends Photography Facebook page! Here are a few pictures that we used in the video! It’s just our way of honoring the men and women of the SPD. They are true HEROES!
