The Bleeding Heart - On the old World War 1 battle fields in the region of Verdun in France still many single graves can be found. Not far from the Fort Vaux I came across this grave of two French soldiers. The heart is badly weathered with the inscription faded and partially gone. What is still visible reads:
Here rest the two comrades….
Henry LAI….
of the 171th … regiment
Fallen for France
at the age of…
Pray for them.

Old Beauty - the restored castle of Vianden in Luxembourg. The family of the Grand-Duke of Luxembourg has its roots here but the castle was a ruin for centuries until it got finally restored. It is open to visitors and each year the History Days are held at the castle, with medieval games and market, giving the visitor a glimpse at life in the castle as it was long ago.

The Ruins of Mont-Faucon sur Glans

The village of Mont-Faucon in France had been entirely destroyed in the artillery shelling of World War 1. The Germans had raised an observation Tower in the ruins of the church. This tower is still there. I created this picture combining color and black and white elements. The sky is high contrast black and white while light effects had been laid on the tower and the former entry door to the church.
