The texture of the rough plaster and the eggshell finish paint help to complete the picture. Canon 7D, 1/13 sec @ f/2.2, ISO 800, 50mm prime lens converted to black and white in Photoshop Elements 6.0 with the Silver Efex Pro plug-in.

Located on a promontory in Arlington, Virginia, overlooking the Pentagon and adjacent to Arlington Cemetery, the memorial's three 270 feet tall stainless arcs evoke the spirit of flight.
