Photographer's Note

While driving home this past Saturday, I passed by an old church cemetery on Dark Hollow Road. I stopped to admire it, then noticed this little scene and got the camera from the glove compartment. I was taken by the contrasts of glowing greenery and long, late afternoon shadow. Best of all was the small flag stationed next to this old headstone dating back to the 1800's. Around here, the local American Legions are faithful about marking the graves of American soldiers on the major patriotic holidays. Our most recent was the 4th of July, Independence Day. It made me smile to see that even this old patriot still gets his honors.
