Memorial Day 2019: Remembering Our Fallen

Adding comments on dotphoto albums

Memorial Day will be different for me this year. I happened to be in Washington, D.C. on Friday, and saw a new memorial along the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial.

Remembering Our Fallen was inspired by a 2010 newspaper story about a father whose grief was even greater four years after his son had died in Iraq because he felt his son had been forgotten, and the war was not even over.

The happy faces of the fallen — most of them in their teens and twenties — shine with youth and promise in this powerful memorial. One cannot help but reflect upon the grief of thousands of families who have suffered and continue to suffer. I will be thinking of them this Memorial Day.

This is a traveling memorial. If you can’t get to Washington, check here to see when Remembering Our Fallen may be near you.

Facebook shrinks your photos, but it does one thing extremely well: Facebook makes it easy to get feedback from your friends. You can Like and Reply to comments, and it’s fun to get feedback on photos. It feels like appreciation.

That’s why dotphoto has added Facebook’s comment capability to your dotphoto albums. You can comment only to your dotphoto guests, or you can share directly to your Facebook account and collect comments in both places. Just scroll to the bottom of any dotphoto to add a comment or post directly to Facebook.

Your phone is a magnifying glass

Magnifying the small print on a partYour camera phone now has such high resolution that it makes a handy magnifying glass. For instance, you can read the tiny branding marks on small parts like this hearing aid if you take a photo and zoom in on your camera phone. dotphoto’s Edittools can also make a permanent image for reference or printing.
