That's pretty sad..lack of flags. Lots in the Omaha area over the holiday. I hope you're having a nice spring, Shawn!! B/W works great on this one! #10169886

I went to a few cemeteries today to photograph American flags placed on the graves of veterans for the Memorial Holiday. Sadly, I found very few. At one cemetery I saw just one and the cemetery in this shot had just three. I wish I had taken some flags with me to place on the graves of the forgotten.

I wasn't too happy with the color version of this shot, so I added a texture to it and converted it to black & white.
