May 26th, 2013:
My uncle Sean was in town for the weekend and took me on walks all over the city, and one of the places we stopped to get some photos was the Boston Common, where a garden of 33,000 American flags had been planted for observance and reflection during Memorial Day weekend, to remember and honor the ultimate sacrifices of our local heroes.
Each of the 33,000 flags represents a fallen Massachusetts service member from the Revolutionary War to present.
Today, Memorial Day weekend 2015, there are 37,000 flags planted.
This photo is actually a photo of a photo being viewed through the display screen of my uncle's camera. My uncle had sent it to my mom so she could see what we were up to on our walk. Below, you'll find the original photo, and a few more bonus never-before-seen photos!
