A: Do you know?

A beautiful and heartbreaking work of art. It made me cry. The full display spreads out across the concrete behind this statue, but it was quite intense and I didn't know if it was appropriate to post here or not, especially since this work of art was created by someone else.

    I don't see anything wrong with shooting somebody else's work. Paul is right, it's your perspective. Where is this memorial?

    Thanks so much, both of you. This display was at a museum in San Francisco called the Legion of Honor, in Lincoln Park.

    Wonderful capture . The mist in the back and angle in which you shot this makes for a very moving piece!

    I agree. I've been to this place (the Holocaust Memorial in SF) many times, and I've never seen a picture that captures its essence better than this.

    your photo only adds to the artist's work. The rain and fog and your angle adds to the intensity of the piece. Well done! Truly heartbreaking piece, I agree.

    that good shot. where is at?

  • Greg Adams

    Greg Adams gave props (21 Mar 2008):

    I agree with everything above. It is fine to post this as it is your perspective of a piece of art. The angle you chose, the fog, etc all add to the overall impact. Very powerful!

  • Joshua Blankman

    Joshua Blankman gave props (28 Mar 2008):

    I agree with the people above, especially since this photo so amazingly displays the aforementioned art. This displays so much emotion and you can clearly understand why there is the statement "a picture is worth a thousand words"

    Wow! Absolutely beautiful.

    Vicki Koch said (13 Sep 2008):

    my heart breaks - just to look at this photo... and think of the lives lost... the people wishing they had a blade of grass to eat...sitting there wondering when the end would come and always hoping someone would come to their aide....
    I believe the artist would love that you captured his work so well... and that all the world can see it now...

    Hauntingly beautiful

  • Joseph

    Joseph (Deleted) gave props (16 Aug 2009):

    The shadow of the trees behind bring the reality to this image, as though the ones who've gone before, the ashes, linger...caught perhaps in the harshness of hatred that thickens the air.

    great capture of this beautiful memorial...
