London photos: broken poppies

During my shift at the WWI memorial installation “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” by artist Paul Cummins at the Tower of London, we “planted” 5,000 ceramic poppies. Well, 5,000 minus a few.

A very few. This seems to me like a remarkably small number of breakages and unusables.

London photo: planting poppies at the Tower of London

Last month I posted a photo from the WWI memorial installation “Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red” by artist Paul Cummins taking shape at the Tower of London. Yesterday, I did a shift as one of the volunteers who are “planting” the ceramic flowers in the moat… which is not a place most people ever get to visit. I’ll be sharing up-close photos from the work and the poppies all week.
