"The images captured within..." Veterans War Memorials Tip by bdbrewer

 
 

The images captured within this shot of the Vietnam Wall are unbelievable. Look closely. At the bottom left you will see ghost like images of soldiers killed during the war. The white ghost-like soldiers marching in the background are soldiers from the Korean War in the 50s. These are actually life size statues positioned independently adjacent to the Vietnam Wall. Their images are simply being reflected on the Wall. In the woman's shadow, you can see more images of soldiers who were killed during this war. And at the top of the wall you can catch a glimpse of the Lincoln Memorial. So much imagery captured in one picture. It's as if the Wall is speaking to you of it's pain, misery, and death.

The lady is a friend of mine. Her name is Mary. She was there to attend the wedding of her niece. Mary will be married in about a week to one of my best friends.
