Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor
Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'til their judgement day comes
Now in darkness world stops turning
Ashes where the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
Hand of God has struck the hour
Day of judgement, God is calling
On their knees the war pig's crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
- Black Sabbath, "War Pigs"

with 3 relatives lost in Belgium in WWI one never found, and one buried in Flanders this place is so close to my heart, and leaves a lasting impression on you when you stand amongst these gravestones. A sensitive crop and a song choice that sums up the futility of it all, but a sacrifice I suppose that means we can lead the lives we do nowadays. Thought-provoking and humbling imagery!
Enjoy your weekend - B.

composition,that reminds us about the unavoidability of death.But here seen through your lens it takes on also different,purely graphical dimension.
The POV and angle you´ve chosen make the visual and graphical effect superb!
Have a nice sunday

Hello Benny - I lost two great-uncles in WW1, both of whom lay buried in ground far from their home, and as we commemorate the centenary of the Great(?) War this is a salutatory shot. The neat, manicured rows of tomb stones look so clinical an end to the horrors experienced by the men they commemorate. I appreciate your 'note' which I had to go and listen to immediately ... great band. I hope to visit this place one day. TFS and warm regards Rosemary
