Those words from the plaque in the garden are worth reading/reflecting on everyday - especially during war time. The colors in the second photo are absolutely amazing. Great capture.

the bottom photo reminds me a bit of that photoshop feature that creates a grain. Kind of like a pastel. Related to todays photo....I tried shooting film from the truck yesterday, but between Mr V's ability to hit every bump in the road and my truck's bad suspension, it's all a jumbaly blur.
