These pictures are from the Canadian War Memorial, near Buckingham Palace in London.
The Memorial itself is a downward facing triangle, cut with a walkway trough the middle - the two sides representing the two World Wars. Water flows down the slopes on both sides
Despite there being very clear signs asking people to stay off the memorial, some families were allowing their children to use the memorial as a play ground - I find this kind of behaviour disappointing.
I loved the way the the memorial had Maple leaves as a clear link to Canada, and I think that the flooding of the water may symbolise time or change.
I just wish that some people would not see the freedoms that people died for in the past as a reason to behave without consideration in the present.
