Weekly Photo Challenge: Color- The Fallen One

Be nice guys its my first post! 🙂

The assignment this week was color (or colour if you’re english).

This is a photo from a memorial in Ypres, Belgium that I visited on a recent trip. Although this may not be the most technical photo in the world (the focus is not fantastic etc), it says a great deal about the emotions behind where we visited. The focus in this photo is on the poppy on the fallen cross. It perfectly resembles the humble soldier striding into battle his strongest weapon, bravery. And when even his most powerful weapon fails, it is engraved into the hearts and minds of all those that fought alongside him and those forever grieving, forever remembering.

R.I.P
