This was taken at the National Cemetery in Grantville, PA. In honor of Memorial Day, flags are placed along the entrance to the cemetery. It honestly is an overwhelming sight. This series is from my trip there to share the sight with everyone.

This is my first attempt at superimposing photos. First is the flags. The second is a tribute to my grandfather. Marine in WWII and Pennsylvania State Trooper.

Featured in Complex Simplicity – 5/29/10 – Thanks!

    This is not just excellent photography, but imaginative photo editing of a very high order!

  • thank you for the wonderful comment. I usually don’t edit photos besides slight tweaking, but this called for it. My first attempt.
