scenes seen through one artist's eyes
What a splendid sequence of memorial statues - somehow the final one is my favourite as it is most poignant...welcome back to the blogosphere..
That final statue, Winged Glory, really does carry a lot of emotion with it, I agree. Thank you for the warm welcome back! Moreover--(as Eeyore would say), thanks for noticing!
Making sense of it all is somewhat daunting. Your photos are thought-provoking.
None of it actually makes sense. Best one can do is put statues of soldiers on pedestals? I question that as well...
Remembrance Sunday much more observed in Britain/Canada than in the US.A vibrant life seems to be a better gift to young people than a statue when you are dead.Such romanticized hocus about nobility when it is mostly pain and squalor.
I quite agree with you, Elizabeth. I heard a most honest statement made by an old war veteran in an interview recently: "When you see a fellow getting hit by a whizz bang and his body parts hanging from branches of trees, patriotism loses its meaning."
Ah, just seeing this now... finally... happily... thoughtfully...
Right up your alley, I'd think. Glad you got it in your sights!
A fine tribute, Lynne. May they all rest easy.
