The Cost Of Freedom

Black And White Photography, Joseph, Photography

“Do we find the cost of freedom
Buried in the ground ?
Mother Earth will swallow you
Lay your body down”

So Close

Black And White Photography, Laurie, Photography


When I took this photo while on my bike trip to Delaware in 2013, I didn’t pay attention to the date.  When I shared this image on Life in Black & White, another photographer noted that James was so close to surviving the war.  He’d almost made it.

That made this image even more poignant for me.
