Lyme - World War II & Korean War Memorial

Right across the highway from the Lyme Town Hall (Lyme is not the same as Old Lyme) is this unique monument to the men and women of Lyme that served in World War II and the Korean War. I couldn't tell what I was seeing from a distance but I was drawn to the sweeping curve of the stone steps and as I got closer I was fascinated by the texture of the stone, lichen, and moss.

The washed out color palette of this photo looks like I applied some sort of photo effect, but this is pretty much how it looked right out of the camera.
