Reflecting on the past
See what I did there? The reflections pictures were so last week. But I came across this from my 2007 visit to the Lockerbie Memorial in Scotland and hadn't remembered the silhouette in it. properly shot it could probably reflect the empty Scottish countryside behind me. To me that's the tragedy of Lockerbie - not just the 200 or so people who were on the plane and their families, but the sheer randomness of Lockerbie and the cracked glass way the effects of these things spread. I'm not commenting on the current prisoner release issue; it's not the kind of blog, plus my heart and head conflict. But I did want to remind myself of what it felt like visiting the site, and lo and behold there was this neat silhouette for our collection. (And one I'd much rather, ahem, stand behind than my frivolous shadow on the beach).
