Reflections in Pink


Pink Reflections

More Memorial Day reflections. Her dad tried to explain the significance of The Wall. She just wanted to stand there and reflect. I hope she remembers more than the searing heat of a DC Memorial Day...

Fantastic picture.

Powerful image combining the innocence of a child with everything the wall represents.

Cheryl said...

Beautiful and heartbreakingly difficult to see.

Ash said...

Gorgeous shot. Part of me wants her to not get the significance of that wall. If even for just a little bit longer.

Sweet thing.

A very powerful, beautiful and heartbreaking capture! Really stunning and as ScoMan wrote, it is powerful because of the image of innocence with everything that wall represents! Thank you for this one! Have a great weekend!

Some times things make a much bigger impression than we realize. Kids have surprised me over and over again with how deep they can think and how perceptive they can be. The enormity of the wall and the emotions it inspired probably weren't lost on her.

I was just catching up here and your comment on my WOW guest post that said you had been in DC recently. I knew you'd have a great photo. I have only seen a traveling wall. I haven't been in DC in years and years. My husband visited when he was on a motorcycle trip last year with a bunch of guys he rides with. They visited all the war monuments and said it was very powerful. Thanks for this great photo.

So difficult to explain isn't it? Humbling and powerful shot.

Cheryl said...

I'm comin' back since I saw you posted this on WOW. I'm so glad you did because this has got the be the best photo I've seen all week long.

love shooting reflections - she looks respectful of what is in front of her young eyes, even if she doesn't understand. to me that says it was explained perfectly.

(p.s. - crop smiling man out - just from the picture, not your life :)
