Veterans Day 2013

I found myself back at Arlington National Cemetery this Veterans Day thanks to a cheap plane ticket and hospitable friends. Despite being a holiday devoted to living veterans, past and present, a few Americans also make their way to Section 60 to honor fallen comrades, friends, and family members. Below are a few frames from an ongoing series: Gardens of Stone.

Luke I wanted you to know I found your blog by accident. I was surprised to find my son's airplane gummies in your photos, (Pt 2), amazing and powerful these "headstone" offerings. Such touching and lovely images you have taken. Thank you
