    Over the weekend Aprilraven and I trekked to Little Rock National Cemetary. When we arrived, there was a man there, sixty-ish, on a Harley. Total biker ... skull cap, chains, dressed in full leathers. I wanted to stop and talk to him so badly, but didn't. I started snapping pictures, trying to figure out this DOF thing when I looked up and saw him visiting with his friend. He was leaned over, both hands on the headstone, having a very serious moment. It was one of the most heart-wrenching things I've seen. I wanted to capture it, yet not intrude ... here's the end result.

    I still have a lot to learn about DOF ... but I shall perservere!!! :D

    Thanks for looking!
