Stop and Think by EricForFriends Stop and Think by EricForFriends
Lille / Rijsel, War Memorial, Spring 2007.

Not my best picture ever, but I wanted to post something on the occasion of Remembrance Day / Veterans' Day, whatever you want to call it, remembering the victims of the pointless catastrophe that is World War I, and the victims of any war that you feel close to.

Another reason I've posted this is to point you to `l8's news article [link] and explain why my avatar is different today.

2009 was also the year in which the last British survivor of the trench war died:

Well, it's French, so I like it, ahah (sooo not objective :D)
No, but I'm quite like you, I like taking picture of people and bits of architecture :)

:D Thank you!

Montpellier is so great for that, but I haven't been there for years. :( I think the place de l'Oeuf is one of the best squares in the world, I'd love to go back there and shoot some Street and Archicture.

Ahah, France gets sometimes to the heart, they say...that's probably the reason why I'm saying Edith Piaf in my student room in New Zealand at this instant :D
Anyway, I hope you'll have the opportunity to travel again there ! ;)

Thankfully, France is not so far away for me as New Zealand, but Montpellier is at the wrong end of it for me. :D

funny...i was on that exact spot..yesterday :p

A lot of French flags and ceremonials around it..including half the battalion stationed on the Lille Citadel :). I like the Place Rihour quarter a lot, although it's not really the most typical spot in Lille..

Now that i think of it..my very first pictures on DA were taken In Flanders Fields: [link]

I've made tons of picture all of there area for my book. Most of them are on slides though. :(

Although the Rihour area is bit touristy at times, it's always nice to be there, like in the whole heart of town. But...

Rue de Gand FTW! :beer::w00t::hungry:
