Those who have long enjoyed such privileges as we enjoy

forget in time that men have died to win them.

I’ve loved this photo for years. It wasn’t very good, but the emotions when I saw those flags was so strong that day and it has stayed with me ever since. Let me put it this way – it only took me a couple of minutes to dig this out of all the film photos I have stored!

This year finally, my skill set was good enough to do something with it.

I created this using the following:

From Topaz Studio:

  • Finger Painting
  • Crisp Morning Run

From on1:

  • Radiance Sunshine
  • Black Soft Glow
  • Red Door Texture
  • Subtle Vignette
  • Dano Border

    1. It is sorrowful, but also very inspiring to see all those flags. All these years later and I still remember the moment that I took that picture.
