Its been a long time since i last posted on my blog but i feel its time to showcase the wonderful yet emotional poppies of the Tower of London.
Each Poppy signifies and also represents a military person lost in the First World War 888,246 of these men and women . My images cannot do this place justice in any way or form but they can enlighten you to the sheer volume of lost souls....never to be forgotten
I'm not jumping on a soap box by any means, but upon my arrival to the Tower of London i was astonished to see the turn out of tens of thousands of people of all nationalities paying there respects to the fallen.
Such an emotional time for many and to be honest i found it hard for a while to hold back my own emotions.That said i soon started to enjoy why i came to see these poppies and the craft work involved yet not forgetting why these poppies are laid here creating the " Blood Swept Lands And Seas Of Red " an emotional visit and something i will never forget.
In photography terms all images here were taken using the Olympus E-M5 & Olympus 12-40 F2.8 and a few taken using the Nikon D7000 with a Tamron 10-24, Lee Big Stopper with Hitech Grads.
You will also see a few images from around the area at night , please enjoy and spare a thought for those lost to help give us what we have today...... Freedom.
