I recently visited Arlington National Cemetery — our nation’s most hallowed ground. Every visit is a humbling experience, and this last one was no exception. The soldiers of The Old Guard (3d U.S. Infantry Regiment) never cease to amaze me. I am awestruck by their impeccable appearance and performance, which is rooted in their dedication and professionalism.

Usually, I have lots to say and tend to ramble on. However, in this post I am going to cheat by simply sharing a quote a by one of my favorite photographers and let my images speak for me. I will not provide any insight as to what they are or how they make me feel. If you’re brave enough, please comment on this post and share your feelings.

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. — Ansel Adams
