War memorial part II


There is another memorial to Canadian forces just as you come up form the canals to the square where the benches are. One side is in English and the other in French, I choose to photograph the French side. It's a quote from Virgil's Aeneid, No day will ever erase you from the memory of time. A beautiful sentiment and perfect for a black and white shot.

It does work very well in B&W. Lots of very apt quotes in Virgil's Aeneid.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
