April Squares: Top Shots, Luxembourg American Cemetery

ISO 320 f/11 1/320sec 18mm

Day 23, find other responses here.

Date and Location of Photo: May 28, 2019. Taken at Luxembourg American Cemetery maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission.

Thoughts on the Edit: All the military cemeteries I have visited over the last four years have been beautifully maintained, which is why in this edit, I have left a workers cart in the background. The staff are always busy working in the background making these places beautiful places for reflection. I’ve added the Luminar Look, Soft Colors, to this file, removing certain effects that were a bit too strong for this photo.

April Squares, an Explanation:

When Becky announced that the April Squares theme was going to be “top”, I thought it over and then sent her a message, then pitched my idea. She was open to my theme within the theme and the result is my response to the April Squares challenge.

I move a lot and I have a move pending. I’ve lived here in England for about four years and will be heading to the United States. Exact dates to be determined, given the current world situation, details have yet to be worked out. My April Squares is a “top shots” reflection on the last four years. Each square represents some moment or place that was meaningful to me. They are in chronological order moving forward in time. I’m attempting to post every day. All photos will be edited in Luminar 3. I hope you enjoy following along, I’ve enjoyed the process of creating. Your comments and thoughts are welcome below.
