‘Armistice Day 2014’

IMG_6027I hope that everyone managed to take 2 minutes out today and to leave aside their daily life to take time to reflect and remember?

This gentleman in my image was amongst those of us present at the war memorial this morning observing this the 100th anniversary with the two-minute silence held in honour of the war dead.

As we all stood in the rain heads bowed listening to the ‘last post’ I was drawn to raise the camera  to capture the sorrow and painful memories clearly etched in this old veterans  face.

On the stroke of 11am much of Britain including shops, offices, railways and airports came to a standstill in remembrance of those who died in a century of conflicts.

All in solemn remembrance.
