Hi Mo,

2 years ago I was in London at this day. I was very impressed. It's something so special that it's impossible to explain.

Best regards
Asta

I thought it was a day to remember all the dead in all the wars. But I was wrong, it seems. I came to know about this day just last year. It's so important not to forget what History teaches us. Impressive photo, Mo.

For Maria Grazia; it is held on the anniversary of the armistice of the First War, but it is to commemorate all the war dead. Especially poignant this year.

Beautiful shot.

My back looks like a poppy today. I got so totally fried by the African sun.

Beautiful shot! I meant to go out and take some photos of the poppies myself, but I never made it in the end. Nice to see this here.
