Arlington National Cemetery

This morning started out with a trip to Arlington National Cemetery. I took this HDR photograph (or actually 7 photographs) of the cemetery. Combining the photographs produced this gorgeous effect. It’s always nice to have a lot of clouds and some interesting foreground. In this case, it was a numbered gravestone, typical in this cemetery.

Our purpose in this trip was to bury Ray’s grandmother in Arlington National Cemetery. She died last year, but her ashes were interred today.

Ray’s cousin Morgan prayed by the grave stone after the ceremony, while everyone else was walking back to their cars. I thought this image of her was beautiful and glad I snapped this shot.

Lunch: We didn’t eat breakfast, since we had planned to go eat around 10am after we were back from the cemetery. I had a very big lunch. What I consumed probably was around 2,000 calories. The “healthy” Blueberry Yogurt Shake was advertised at 600 calories and the Cheeseburger on a Glazed Bun and Fries were around 1500 calories.

Dinner: Because I consumed so much, I just couldn’t even force myself to eat dinner. I was outside of my daily limit during these 1300 calorie days and I felt full all day.
