Tommy is remembered

Posted by
Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 11 August 2014 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

Ray Lonsdale's sculpture of a First World War "Tommy" in Seaham Harbour (part of a short series.)

I love this sculpture, it represents all of the glorious "Tommies" who gave their lives selflessly in a war that took place a hundred years ago. A war that changed the course of our lives today.

PENTAX K100D 1/180 second F/8.0 ISO 200 27 mm (35mm equiv.)
