Weekly Shoot and Quote Challenge: Silence

This week, over at Ese’s Voice, the Shoot and Quote challenge is Silence.

An event has happened, upon which it is difficult to speak, and impossible to be silent. – Edmund Burke

Verdun - Douaumont

Verdun – Douaumont


  1. A strong and telling photo. And the quote is just perfect for setting the ambience.

  2. I hadn’t heard that quote before, a perfect fit with the photograph – thanks for sharing.

  3. Powerful quote and image to match! Well done 🙂

  4. How very appropriate, Sue.

  5. So sad but beautiful all the same time…

  6. your photo eloquently summed up burke’s quote.

  7. A couple of weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit the Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor and the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii. Your photo brought back all the conflicting emotions I felt at the time: frustration, sadness and strangely, peace.

    The tower at Verdun also reminds me a lot of the Monument at Vimy Ridge: http://jaspasjourney.wordpress.com/2013/11/11/remembrance-day-at-vimy-ridge/
