Tomb of the Unknown Soldier by Mo Connelly

November 2020 - Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

About the Image(s)

Two images: the tomb of the unknown soldier in Arlington Cemetery and superimposed a soldier from the Korean war statue on the Washington Mall.
The Tomb is very emotive, but seemed a little bland by itself so I added the ‘ghost’ of a soldier from the wonderful Korean veterans war memorial.
It was taken sometime ago, before I concentrated on documentary story telling, and I can’t remember camera or other details.

This round’s discussion is now closed!

This is a very clever idea.
I am local to DC, but did not recognize the Arlington Cemetery scene. However, the statues at the Korean War Memorial are so distinctive, I immediately recognized that.   Posted: 11/14/2020 16:36:47

Thanks. I think it's the memorial amphitheatre, but you will know better than me. If not then I have no idea where it is! It's a while since I've been in Washington.   Posted: 11/15/2020 01:20:54

A very nice interpretation for Remembrance Day. Perhaps the marble could be toned down with a bit of a blur to give it a more ethereal feel.   Posted: 11/18/2020 12:16:08

A very nice image that works so well with its muted tones and overall simplicity.   Posted: 11/20/2020 10:38:03
