Photographer's Note

Using the Eiffel tower, the lady of Paris, to set the place, this is a close up of the peace monument at the end of Parc du Champs de Marcs. The monument consists of two rows of columns on each end and between them a platform with a passage and along this platform there is a glass wall. On this glass, and on the columns, the word peace is written in many languages with different alphabetes. Quite interesting if you like linguistics, I can identify frieden, pace, paz and peace in this frame.
I took my picture through the glass using the frame of the glass to frame the bottom of the tower. It was in a very grey weather and the glass is full of city dirt and raindrops. There was just as much color as in yesterdays picture so this time I went for B&W and tried to do sepia for my first time.
I think the result is a bit lowkey for a peace monument, but then there is allways a doubt in everlasting peace....
