Hey POTNers

In Sept of this year for a day I visited DC & Arlington, 24 years ago as a Junior in HS for a Class HS trip was the only time I've been there. I don't recall having a camera back then but I did vow to come back someday to revisit the wonderful sites I saw.

I spent the day, sunrise to after midnight photographing our Nations Capitol, took alot of Photo's this day but I Felt the changing of the Guard and Arlington deserved a tribute Video here from me. so click this if you like what you see attached below( click 1080p for bestest viewing )

Saw the Changing of the Guard 4 times to get different angles. I got there when it opened at 8am and walked straight up to it and was the only person there (before the buses and crowds arrived) for the first Changing of Guard, at the time I Felt very honored to witness this alone. I also was very aware of my Shuttersounds coming from my Camera's

here's 8 of my favs

1.

Very pleasing images and video. Well done.
It's good to reflect upon these things from time to time.

What an excellent tribute and outstanding photos. I was born and raised in Arlington, Va. Arlington Cemetary is truely a place of solemnity and peace. It is without a doubt the most hallowed and most beautiful place in our country. The headstones standing in rank pay tribute to the devotion to duty, honor and country by those who served. God bless each and everyone of them.

Very nice. Arlington is such an imposing place even for non Americans. When we visited it last year it left a lasting impression on both my wife and I. We felt an overwhelming sadness that we could not shake off. Thanks for posting them.
