Memorial Day

In observance of Memorial Day 2018, I digitally modified a photo that I had taken at the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. The United States flag, “Old Glory,” is in color and the graves below are monochrome. I’ve given it much thought to the meaning that I was trying to obtain by this and it could symbolize the price that many have paid to uphold the ideals that we, as American’s, believe in. It could also mean that Old Glory is waving proudly over those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Whatever meaning you find in this image, I hope it sparks a moment where you take the time to remember a friend, a soldier, a loved one, or even a complete stranger who is no longer here because they had what it took to put their life on the line and believed in making the United States of American one of the greatest countries on earth. Freedom comes with one of the heftiest price tags and we take this day to honor those who have paid dearly for the freedoms we enjoy each and every day.
