Weekend Reflections: Iwo Jima

On Tuesday -- Flag Day -- I showed the statue atop the Iwo Jima monument.  Today's photograph shows part of the polished black granite base of the monument.  The tall object reflected on the left side is the eternal flame.

A great reflective photo for us to reflect upon this week!

BTW, Eagan doesn't have its own equipment - yesterday's posting showed a robot from the St. Paul organization during their visit.

Bon weekend

I remember of this polish black granite there in our trip in 2006, you had a fabulous idea, your picture is wonderful!

This is really perfect, Jack, in its ghostliness. A little poem of an image.
