Weekly Photo Challenge-Transformation



My contribution for this week’s challenge…



It is hard to imagine that these peaceful fields,

near Bullecourt, France…

were once the scene of so much bloodshed.

The German Army was on this ridge…

with a clear view of the approaching opposition

which had to cross all this open ground.

Again it has been transformed into a quiet drive…

along original roads for tourists to hear

where their ancestors fought and died.

Some of these tourists surreptitiously create

small memorials to their ancestors.
