Tracing 2

-at the wwII memorial-
My thoughts :-
Could he be searching for lost family/friend? Perhaps he'd wish that he'll never find the person's name in this list? If he does see the name, wouldn't it offer some kind of closure? Or may be I have too much time on hand to be wondering about this?

I have been wanting to photograph this memorial for a LONG time. However, as no one pays attention to it, it will be a plain sight. Last week, I chanced upon this man and "click", i think it adds a deeper emotion to the photo. Anyway, I wish you an enjoyable weekend ahead! :)

may I ask what memorial is that for, the inscription is difficult to read and much more difficult to understand, hehehe!?

enjoy your weekend!

Nice capture.This photo makes me create many stories about this man and his connection to the war and the names that they are on the list.

This wall reminds me of all the news articles these few weeks of Scottish soldiers visiting Johor, Singapore in memory of their love ones.

These lists are mere letters, but how much sadness can they portray and long gone lost dreams evoke. No need to be a relative to be touched, so strong horrors can't be erased.

You did well to wait for the right day. Great one. Very touching.

Kris! You always seem to know how to take an image and photograph it with such emotions and feeling to it!
