Order – Weekly Photo Challenge

This week’s photo challenge is “Order – Rows, stacks, columns: this week, share an image that sends chaos packing (neatly).”

What sprung immediately to my mind was the ordered rows of the graves of those that had perished in the chaos of the Somme and Flanders in the First World War.  How peaceful and ironic it all seems.

Sea of Graves

And in the museum stood in cabinets, co-ordinated according to size and colour, shell casings from the war. The contrast with how they must have rained down on the battlefields is stark.

Why not have a go at the weekly photo challenge yourself.

  1. The juxtaposition of your two chosen images is very potent. One cannot possibly fail to be moved when standing in a war cemetery. The uniformity of the grave markers, how beautifully tended the cemetery spaces, the serenity, all seem so at odds with what caused their creation.
