Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette #2

Dad Wrote “This was kind of pretty”

This picture is one from Dad’s World War II Photo Album. It is nice to know they could find a little beauty among the devastation of the war. Look at how the bushes in the fore ground silhouette the shape of a heart.

Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for the next chapter of my fathers letters to my mother.

  1. It is very pretty. I’m glad you pointed out the heart or I might have missed it. What a treasure. Thanks for sharing it.

    • I did not see it the first hundred times I looked at it! lol

      • Isn’t that something?

  2. The bushes give the background a heart shaped frame. Your father had a good eye. Do you know where this is?

    • All I know is that it was taken overseas. Fellow soldier Marvin Cain wrote on this same picture “Town on Blenoid” I have tried researching Blenoid as I though it may be a town with no luck.

  3. I did not see the heart until you pointed it out. Great photo. 🙂

  4. I admire the soldier who was able to see beauty even in such horrid circumstances.

  5. it all looks calm from a distance. It was nice to see beauty in all the nastiness.
