Memorial Day

SDP  5-28-13
Freedom isn't free. On this Memorial Day, I'm remembering all our men and women who sacrificed their lives.  The more I see of the world, the more grateful I am.  I took this photo last night at the Vietnam Memorial in Ft. Myers.  I was really struggling with the intense glare of the backlights.  But, I like how the final product turned out when I used the sepia effect. (Oddly enough, shortly after I took this, one of the lights illuminating the memorial suddenly went out -- which pretty much left me in the dark for my photo opp.) Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

And it turned out beautifully. I hope you are having a good Memorial Day, a wonderful remembrance of all the men and women who served.

Super photo, love the sepia. Freedom should never be accepted as a given right, so many fought, gave their lives, or came home different,altered forever, to give this to so many. Greetings from Jean

Freedom is most definitely not free. Thanks for sharing this amazing photo.

No, we have a huge debt to those who served.
