      This is one of those "classic" photos that will be around for a long while.
      Very nicely documented set

      For those of us old enough to remember, this photo instantly brings to mind the iconic shot of John Kennedy, Jr., saluting his father's body in 1963... BTW, yours is a very good shot and the set is impressive.
