Chesham's Tribute

Anne and I were attempting to get a reasonable picture during the heavy rain falls yesterday - also I have taken a few signs and posts out - I think it should have the desired effect.

Chesham's tribute

Taken with OM D EM 1mkll + 12-100 lens - also posted on dpnow.com

Re: Chesham's Tribute

Aside from the well composed subject I like the sombre tone of this picture, Barrie.

Yes, it's the time of year to feel great pride and deep sorrow in equal measures - and a very special anniversary this year, too.

I always feel uncomfortable about having an anniversary.

Scarcely a week goes by when I don't dwell on the horrors and waste of both wars (or any war). With me it's not a case of buy a poppy, stay silent for a couple of minutes on the 11th Nov., job done until next year - than an anniversary implies. I find it's particularly acute now I'm older, and also that my German partner lost three of her uncles in WW2, and the remaining one is still walking around with a Russian bullet in his body.

I'll put money into the collection boxes, but don't wear a poppy to demonstrate that I've done so, which is the reason I feel many people wear one.

(I expect many people will disagree strongly with me on this!)

Jim

I can relate to the greater part of your post, Jim, but I do not wear a poppy to demonstrate that I have given money, more to be able to walk along the High Street without being stopped again by the many collectors we have along the High Street for this very worthwhile cause.

Regards,
Anne

Re: Chesham's Tribute

I contribute but refuse the poppy so that it can be sold to someone else.
I don't feel the need to demonstrate that I have contributed, the same as I don't demonstrate that I contribute to other charities, but if stopped by other collectors I politely tell them that I have.

We don't agree on some things.... BUT ... ON THIS... I agree 100% !

War is a total waste of what's important - life.

Good photo - I might have to visit it before the sculptures come down.

I tend to 'ration' what I give in order to give to all the collectors!

Re: Chesham's Tribute

We put money in the tins but keep the poppies from year to year, the poppy is an injection to vaccinate us from being bugged.
