Memorial day, May 30, 2011. After the Memorial Day cerimonies, at the newest Veterans Cemetary near Dixon, in Northern California, United States, I decided to take some photos of the headstones as I was driving out of the cemetary. I couldn’t help but take this shot of a mother and her child, concentrating on a specific headstone or marker. My guess is that she was “TAKING HIS PICTURE WITH HIS FATER”. Or at least with his father’s marker anyway. It is so sad to see how many families come here to visit their loved ones. The number of permanent residents has rissen to over 8,000, in just 4 short years. This year, the Army had a 50 piece orchestra to go along with the audio program that my friend Paul sets up, for the guest speakers and officials. The wind was blowing about 20 MPH, which made flags stand out straight, as well as hard to hold for the “Patriot Riders” that come to all of the veterans events at different cemetaries around the country. I took this and many other shots with my Canon EOS 60D and my 18-135MM AF IS F:4/5.6:1 Telephoto lens. This shot was taken while I was sitting in the drivers seat of my Ford and shooting out my passenger window.
