JFK Eternal Flame at Arlington National Cemetery

Leave a comment

Occasionally, I shoot around Arlington National Cemetery a bit after my visits. Sometimes wandering down to the JFK grave site to watch people. You can see emotion, thought, reflection and memories for some. I don’t intrude on their personal visits with the camera. I focus on the flame most of the time. But as I was walking away frustrated by the crowds this past summer day to get any decent shots of the flame area. I turned and there was what looked to be a family of 4 standing at front. I was only able to grab this one shot before they turned quickly for the tram. It remains one of my simple favorites of the cemetery.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
