Completed this page a few times before I felt happy with it, I just couldn't get the right photos on it to look right.
We visited the Tower of London last year to see the amassing art installation "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red" it was breath taking to see all the poppies and each one representing a British military fatality during the war.
There are a few things on the page that are about the subject more than the aesthetics of the page.
I chose the brown / sepia tone of the page in reference to the mud of the trenches, the tower is famous for its ravens and I have a cut out photo of a raven on the page along with the Keys for tower and a crown for the Crown Jewels that are housed there. The raven made me think of the poem Nevermore that I thought was quite apt for the subject, and so this is also stamped in the background.
As I struggled with photos to put on the page, I realised that I had sitting in the corner of the room one of the poppies from the mote that we had managed to buy before they were all sold out .. so out came the camera and problem solved!
