No return

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 6 August 2014 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

I was really touched by this art installation built into the granite walls in Castle Drogo in Devon, it's called the corridor of no return and built to symbolise the marching off to war that commenced this week in 1914 and those who never came back.

Canon EOS 60D 1/20 second F/6.3 ISO 3200 18 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

This is such a powerful image. It just says so much about all the men who went off to war and never returned. A very touching image with so much meaning. 5*s

Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori... the shot is powerful Doug. I listened to a bbc podcast this morning, the why factor, about patriotism and the world wars and what it meant to be a soldier at the time...it's such a solid event in our lifetime and it's there stuck in our history. I love this image and how pensive it makes me...not the best feeling ruminating on it but certainly well shot by you and a great communicative piece of art.
