Eternal lines

My Get Pushed challenge this week was to take a photo using leading lines. So, I quickly stopped in the National Military Cemetery outside the Minneapolis airport for a few pictures. I wanted a picture of the grave markers leading to a flag, but the only flag was on a memorial, and blocked from sight by trees.
@littlequeenie Here's another attempt at leading lines.

Of the two , I like this one the best. I think it's because of the corner, and also so many more in the background.

I think I prefer this one as well - it has more interest with the diagonal lines rather than the straight ones. Although, both are very sobering shots to realize that each marker was a life cut short with loved ones left behind.

Beautifully captured. Such an amazing place.

@randystreat @farmreporter Me, too. This one is my favorite. Many, many years ago, I took a picture in the Luxembourg Military Cemetery with the headstones leading back to the American flag. I really wanted to do it again, but the flag wasn't in a visible spot.

Awesome shot.

I prefer this photo of the two you have posted. The graves look endless beyond the trees and into the distance. Lots of leading lines to play with - and none of them are dominant, which I personally prefer.

Always very sobering. I've never been to a military cemetery like this. There is something very powerful about the sight of all those names, the same on memorials here in the UK, names given to babies, raised as children, called downstairs and home from playing in the street...
