17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Virginia Veterans Cemetery at Sunset

Memorial Day, sat with the flags, the fallen, heard the flagpole clanking as if it was the cries of the men and woman laid to rest. The wind had been generous, gently blowing, lifting the flags allowing for the grieving to see their love ones colors once more. Finally, it was my time to capture the moments after the families had left, and the sun started to set. This is America.
