Sarasota National Cemetery & Patriot Plaza
295 acres with a 2800 seat amphitheater
'to honor veterans and inspire patriotism'
Part 1 of my Memorial Day project. The rainy day with clouds and bits of sunshine added to the feel here. There was also an event earlier in the day and I thought afterward might be a better time for reflecting in many ways. The photographs here represent the structures as well as the soldiers. There is a quiet solemn feeling standing there and looking past the stones. I hope you can see how it feels. I hope it gives you a moment to ponder the loss. The area surrounding the ampitheater truly conveys patriotic inspiration through the bronze eagles with wings spread, the blue and gold stars, the pictures and stories conveyed. Lucky enough to capture just the smallest of rainbows at the end.
