War Brides

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
War Brides
War Brides
This is a pic of a portion of an installation of images depicting war brides on their wedding day. The installation is call "War Brides: One-Way Passage" and was housed at the Royal BC Museum in Victoria.

The installation was lit by a series of incandescent lights, so I corrected the color to remove the yellow cast, lifted some shadows and adjusted the image curve.

This is quite a display! Great shot of this, Christina! As I mentioned in my post, today would have been my parents' 70th anniversary. So I guess my mother was a "war bride" in a way -- On Sept. 1, 1939 Hitler invaded Poland; that's how they talked about their wedding day, forever afterwards. In a sense, and until Pearl Harbor, it was their 9-11. Old photos seem so bittersweet! I really like this shot.

Great shot Christine! I agree with all the previous comments ... images as this one should make people refect about certain aspects of today's world ... we humans don't seem to ever learn from the past.
