Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red
I went out into the city the other day to clear my head and passed by this art installation at Tower Bridge. Its in remembrance of WWI and all the lives lost. Members of the public can buy each poppy for £25 and then servicemen have been installing them personally. The money goes to charities benefiting veterans. By the end of the project there will be nearly 900k ceramic poppies surrounding Tower Bridge for each life lost. The last poppy will be put in on armistice day in November. The pictures dont do it justice and it was very moving to see in real life. War seems far too pointless in my opinion and these poor souls who lost their lives in the name of freedom.
