The Crosses of Lafayette

Crosses - Lafayette - 2013

On the hillside across from the Lafayette, California BART station is a remarkable memorial to the US soldiers killed in the Iraq war.

Here’s one view – shot with the 14mm lens on my Fujifilm X-E2. It’s a stunning memorial up close. So many crosses, and crescents, and stars all the way up the hill. Up close, it makes one pause. So many crosses, so many lives.

This time of year our thoughts return to peace – this is a memorial that reminds us to refocus on that goal. Peace be with you – indeed.
