Remembering the Fallen Ones

If you have ever wanted to see something that made you say wow out loud, I urge you to hop foot it to the Tower of London.  My family and I visited the Poppies in the moat of the Tower of London and it was absolutely amazing - jaw dropping.  As soon as I got a small glance of the red, I immediately said wow.

The magnificent exhibition - called the Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red is a powerful statement of human sacrifice in the Great War.  A total of 888,246 hand crafted ceramic poppies have been installed in the moat since August.  Each poppy represents a fallen solider who lost their life.

When you visit the poppies the mass of them put everything into prospective and just makes you realise how many lives were actually lost.

Do not let the crowds put you off from visiting.  When I went it was the school holidays and everyone was in good spirits.  There was no pushing and shoving, you will all have your turn to see it. At the end of the day we were all there to pay our respects and to see a once in a life piece of art.  It will never be recreated.

Here are a few more pictures...
