Memorial Day

This past weekend I drove up to Fredericksburg, VA to see my dad and step mom for Memorial Day weekend. Saturday night we went to the Fredericksburg National Cemetery to see the 22nd annual luminaria. Local boy scouts spend all of Saturday lighting 15,300 candles to pay tribute for every fallen soldier buried there, and every 30 minutes taps was played to honor the fallen.

  1. Becca, your use of dramatic light and your framing sensibilities are spot on for invoking a sense of reverence and remembrance. I’m drawn most to the last image. You did a great job showing the bigger picture and details. I’m glad you shared all three images instead of just one. If you had only posted one image, which one would you have chosen?

  2. I really enjoy your use of lighting in all of these images. These photos definitely invoke emotion into the viewers and show a lot of detail that most wouldn’t normally see!
