Memorial Day

This is the display of flags at the Airborne and Special Operations Museum here in Fayetteville in honor of Memorial Day. Each flag represents a Hero's life lost in war.

Oh Candace, I'm SO glad you did this! It's perfect and a great reminder for Memorial day. For me, this picture conveyed a lot of emotion. I love the slightly brooding sky, the colors and how you shot at f/10 so every single flag is in focus...because EVERY single flag is important. Pat yourself on the back, girl. Go ahead, do it ;).

Wow, this one is just so beautiful, in so many ways. I love that you have this display in your town, how awesome. I love what Brittney said, she totally said it perfectly, the sky and ALL the flags, it's really just so wonderful!

I love this, I actually went to our graveyard today because they had little flags all over the military tombstones, and I wanted to get an awsome picture of them but they didn't turn out that great..but yours is lovely... just lovely. I am going to post mine on my blog for Memorial day, so I am glad you picked the subject Hero.

Grrr...I didn't look at other posted pictures before posting mine. I used a different theme, though, so I guess it's not too much of a duplicate. :)

I really like the motion of these flags...the wind blowing through them. You cropped it nicely, and I like the colors, too.
