Blood Swept Lands

The Boy Child and I took the Tube to Tower Hill to see the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Blood, an art installation in the moat of the Tower of London.
I feel that any words of mine will be inadequate, so I’m going to let the images tell their own story.

Summer 500: 299.

  1. I'm in awe of this piece if art and commemoration and am looking forward to see how it grows in coming months – I hadn't seen the piece flying over the bridge before

  3. We also got a lot of coverage of this amazing art in our news coverage. I think, when you see that each flower represents a loss, it really is a visual of what the war cost. Thanks for sharing your photos.
