Image submitted for Dogwood Photography’s annual 52-week photography challenge 3: Inspiration: Black and White (Your inspiration this week is to simply take an amazing Black and White photograph of any subject you want.)
Henri Cartier-Bresson said that photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing, and which no contrivance on earth can bring back again. Not even photography can bring these things back, except in the memory of those who knew them, or in the imagination those who did not.

On and on I travel;
Though I fall and die, let it be
In fields of clover.

“Humanity needs to weep and this is the time to weep…
Even today, after the second failure of another world war, perhaps we can speak of a third war, one fought piecemeal, with crimes, massacres, destruction…
War is irrational: its only plan is to bring destruction: it seeks to grow by destroying…
Greed, intolerance, the lust for power. These motives underline the decision to go to war and they are too often justified by an ideology.”
“Humanity needs to weep and this is the time to weep.” – Pope Francis
