ghostly stars

According to the plaque nearby, each of the 4,048 golden stars at the National World War II Memorial represents 100 Americans who died in that war. This photo only represents about 15,000 of the dead.

so close, yet so far

A month and a half ago, I resolved to finish that pesky roll of film before school started. So much for that plan! Time for a new one: going out with a friend on Sunday to finally knock it out. I'm curious to see the difference between this shot and the film version. I'm hoping that the distortion will be nonexistent with the better glass on my 35mm, but I really have no clue about my exposure settings. I sure hope my light meter was accurate!
