    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     'The memorial was crowded with tour groups and visitors, yet of all the monuments and historical sites we visited in DC, the crowd possessed a level of dignity, silence, and respect unmatched by any other monument,' says 8Stephan8. ' I found the reflective properties of the black granite used for the memorial to be eerie yet beautiful as all who walked by were dimly reflected. It was a somber and moving experience and one that I will not soon forget.' This image was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for Veterans Day in November 2012.

    A photo taken at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, DC on 5/15/12 reflecting beautify yet ghostly as the sunlight mellowed to dusk. A salute to a staggering sacrifice and an unknowable amount of humanity and potential that was lost.
