Silhouette – Travel with Intent

My photos for this challenge Silhouette are two very different ones.   The first is a stormy scene over Glengarriff in West Cork, judging by the dark clouds, the heavens were about to open, but we were safely indoors sipping a coffee and enjoying some home cooked food!

My second photo is the Hammering Man outside the exhibition centre in Frankfurt.   This sculpture is  a 21 metres tall moving man, and was installed in 1991 for the opening of the exhibition centre.

Remember and Reflect

Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day in this part of the world, 72 years since the closing of that terrible concentration camp, Auschwitz,    Unfortunately the day came too late for the many thousands who had already died there.

We visited the Jewish cemetery in Frankfurt recently, and found it a very moving place, especially  the Jewish Holocaust Memorial Wall, a very personal memorial that the city of Frankfurt has created, to honor the memory of the 12,000 Frankfurt Jewish Citizens who lost their lives during the Holocaust, including Anne, Margot and Edith Frank.  The wall has the names of the Jewish people that died in the various camps, some show only the date of birth of the person, and the camp where they died,  as no records were kept of the actual dates of death in these places.

Here are some photos we took during our visit.
