Remembrance at the Tower of London

I had a meeting in London on Remembrance Day this week. Since I was in London I decided to make a quick detour before my meeting started so I could see the installation at the Tower of London – Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red. On Tuesday the last poppy of the art installation was planted – 888,246 ceramic poppies which each represent a British fatality in the First World War. I had my fuijifilm x10 with me so managed to get a few panoramas shots which show the scale of the installation.
