      Life goes on but sometimes you need to counter punch the ugliness. I shot this last weekend at Antietam National Battlefield just outside Sharpsburg, Md. It's meant to be a counter weight to the vile, barbaric video of James Foley's murder, an anti-snuff film. In this area around the bridge men fought and died. Lives were defined. Now, just shy of 150 years later, beauty abounds. I want this to help define who Jim was. #RIPJamesFoley
