Crimson, White and Indigo

Today is the day we set aside to give thanks and pay respect to those who have sacrificed their lives in defense of our country.

In their honor I've created the following photo set, based on images from the McPherson cemetary, processed using Fractalius and accompanied by some lyrics from Standing on the Moon*.

Memorial Day flags

Standing on the moon
I see the battle rage below

Memorial Day flags

Standing on the moon
I see the soldiers come and go
::

Memorial Day flags

There's a metal flag beside me
Someone planted long ago
::

Memorial Day flags

Old Glory standing stiffly
Crimson, white and indigo – indigo
::

Memorial Day flags

Standing on the moon
With nothing left to do
A lovely view of heaven
But I'd rather be with you – be with you

*Standing on the Moon, words by Robert Hunter, music by Jerry Garcia
