Retrospective: “A Disturbing Pattern”

A visit to the veteran’s cemetery at Ft. Snelling in August, 2008, which is in Bloomington, MN, inspired this manipulation.  I was attracted to the pattern and and at the same time, depressed by the seemingly endless rows of headstones.  As I studied the image later, it occurred to me that flipping the image and stacking it with the original gave a better impression of the number of graves that would otherwise be difficult to show with a single image.  I appreciate how the image gives the impression the rows of headstones seem to go to on into infinity.
