Top Ten: 6,600

This photo was taken the afternoon of Veterans Day last month.

Marywood University students had 6,600 flags planted on campus-- one for every American service man and woman killed in fighting since 9/11/01.  It was powerful.

Let's talk a little about photographic technique.  It was a total accident.  The auto focus zeroed in in the closest flag, leaving the rest of the flags, the trees, and the library building nicely out of focus.  I like this shot a lot.

Tomorrow...  my favorite photograph of 2012.
