Freedom is a Light

Freedom is a light for which many have died in darkness

– Inscription on the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary Soldier

This tomb marks the grave where many revolutionary soldiers were mass buried in what is now downtown Philadelphia. A flame that is kept constantly burning to honor the memory of the battles that occurred there.

I waited for about a half hour for the sun to dip beneath the tree line as I wanted to capture the burst contrasting with the flame in the front of the tomb.
