Friday Fotos: Arlington House

This is a shot of Arlington House, the Lee family's home, that I took this monrning crossing Memorial Bridge.  The house is on top of the hill, and the flag is half mast, as it is any day there is a military funeral at Arlington National Cemetery.

I like the view with the hillside right there behind the other building.  Nice composition.

Pat - wonderful photo. DC is such a unique place in so many ways, and this pic is just one example of how different it really is.

Thanks so much for all of your comments! 

OK, I was not in the driver's seat when I took this one.  That would be more irresponsible than driving and yakking on my cell phone!

And during the week, they have several services each day, and this means that the flag is almost always half mast between Monday and Friday.  One of my clients said that her grandfather, a veteran of World War II, was recently buried at Arlington.  As she described the service in detail, with the music and the flag and the salute, she said it was the most beautiful, moving tribute she could have imagined.

Somehow, it's a little less sad when the service is for someone who survived a war and had many decades of a wonderful life afterward than when a young service man or woman is coming home from Iraq or Afghanistan.
