Brick and Stone and Sky

A memorial dedicated to the veterans of WWI and WWII stands nestled in the courtyard of a church community center.

I really love red brick.

The statue seems to be a look at a friend, beckoning with his hand for us to come over for a chat. A sad reason, bit I don't feel sad looking at the cast soldiers...

I love that clock! I don't see hour clocks tha look quite like that. And it is beautiful!

This is a gorgeous shot. Love that building and that amazing blue sky.

Darn, I've been forgetting about Midweek Blues. I have to try to remember this week to link up, cuz I had a post all ready to go and then forgot to link it. My mind is going...

I'm really enjoying the soldiers - the one offering his hand looks almost like a Puritan. They seem so noble, so sure of themselves.

The rounded architecture with clock and weather vane is splendid and crisp under that blue sky.

The soldiers look so peaceful, if you can say that about a war memorial.

I love brick too & this brick has a quality about it that you don't see in all brick which makes it even more pleasing to the eye.

Lovely shots all... I especially like the middle close-up. The farm shot series below is delightful too.

This is one of the nicest war memorials I have ever seen!

I like red bricks too. :)

Nice statue but I was thinking: how come it's always men? It's not like these wars affected only half of the human race.

Carletta said...

This really looks like a great hue of red brick as well. Great architectural details as well.
My Grandpa was s WWII veteran so this is a special treat for me.
Lovely post Dianne!

Elizabeth said...

I love the angle of this photo and how you can see just a few of those roman numerals. Very cool.

Jim said...

That's a nice statue you found, Dianne. Here we have many, many more statues of Sam Houston (our [Texas'] first president) than we do of WW stuff.

Everything is bigger in Texas.
