Well I had to do it, go to London that is and photograph the poppies in the Tower of London moat. Not sure whether I picked the right day as it was half term and the children were on holiday from school. As it was I think I did ok, it was nice to see parents and children together at this most important time in our history.
The sad thing was that each poppy represents a lost life in the first world war and I was shocked at the amount of life lost and the poppies brought this massive loss home to me.
Four of us went up there in two waves and I was lucky to go early and catch the light even though the train was full to bursting. We stayed well into the evening to try and get images and although the poppies were not illuminated directly it worked out ok.
Below are a few of the day.
As dusk fell.
Thanks for looking, Mike
