May 8th, 1945 – 69 years later

May 8th marks Victory Day in Europe, the day when the World War II, humanity bloodiest conflict, came to a halt in Europe after almost 6 years of Nazi domination.

Many Canadians fought in Europe, some pay the ultimate price with their life but most came back to Canada. I made a quick stop at the military section of Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa to catch a few photos of gravestones of men and women who served their country during that conflict.

    1. Merci ….. Je voulais faire toutes ces photos en N/B sauf celle avec les fleurs blanches puis quand j’ai vu le bouquet sur le sol de la première photo avec toutes les pierres tombales de dos, j’ai dit celle-là aussi je laisse les fleurs en couleurs et c’est ma préférée

    1. I love working with the DOF but I have to say I need some practice because it’s a hard technique to master and you need to know your lenses well to reach the results you want …. thanks for stopping by
