This is a photograph of the National Cemetery in Wilmington, NC. A national cemetery is a cemetery maintained by the US government for people who have served honorably in the armed forces. My great aunt & uncle who fought in WWII are both buried in this cemetery. For this image I wanted to show a great amount of tombstones while also focusing on the idealism of the American flag. At this cemetery there are so many beautiful oak trees so I used them to help frame where I wanted the eye to go.
