Skies of Remembrance

Today is SkyWatch Friday.

My photographs were taken at a local park this morning.  They don’t depict Jewish life, per se, but were taken with International Holocaust Remembrance Day in mind.  I wanted to capture some clear skies, never posted before, to honor those who were Holocaust victims (including all those who were murdered and all those who survived).  I wanted to capture the barren trees within the lake environment and skies above to depict life in its varied forms and realms.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day is tomorrow, January 27, 2012.

Crisp and Clear at the Lake

Land, Lake Skies

  4. Beautiful choice for your tribute.
    including all those who were murdered and all those who survived
    How true that those who survived were victims too and so were their children and their children’s children. I suppose that, although it is for different reasons, the whole of mankind was a victim of the Holocaust. Can things ever be the same after such a tragedy?

  5. Great post and tribute.
