Memorial Day

Here’s hoping we will all find some time to remember those that gave their lives for their fellow citizens. While today is Memorial Day in the US, I believe the sentiment pertains to the human condition.

    Thank you, James, for a gracious and honorable picture to commemorate Memorial Day.
    Any one who has lost a loved one in combat deserves our appreciation.

    A truly beautiful picture! The composition shows the art of looking past the beautiful distractions around us to focus on what is truly important, but then my son is on his second tour in Afghanistan, so maybe I am just seeing what is most comforting to me. Thanks for sharing, James. What kind of equipment are you using?

    Deborah, thank you and your son, your family. I will keep you and your son in my prayers.

    Wow! very nice shot. I can see a very peaceful living dead as I look upon the flag.
    This also reminds me of great people wasted their lives.

  6. Beautiful shot, James. The bokeh and back lighting are perfect in this shot!

  8. U.S veterans are the heroes of the country and the memory will last forever. This also reminds me of braves people who fought for justice.
