My Sunday Photo


We went to see the  Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower Of London, we visited when it was just starting in August and it was a quiet time, chance to stand and remember those fallen in World War 1.  http://www.giventodistractingothers.co.uk/2014/08/blood-swept-lands-and-seas-of-red.html

I wanted to see it finished and found the crowds immense this time, so photos were trickier this time and time to contemplate the lives gone was also more difficult. If you do go I suggest going around to the Tower Bridge side to be able to see the poppies. This also gives you a chance to see Traitors Gate and we spotted a Yeoman Warder talking to the crowds.

  5. Love the way you've framed this photo - we went to see the poppies last week and found them very sobering although felt the crowds detracted a little from the impact of it.
