It is six months since I last posted here on Travel Tales and I have missed doing so. However I am now back after a very busy few months, I have had lots of adventures which I am looking forward to sharing on the blog which I regard as an online scrapbook of my life adventures, which I hope visitors here will enjoy.
A recent visit to see the Weeping Window Cascade during its time at Caernarfon Castle was very emotional and has inspired me to get posting again and share some of my photographs with you.
I found the visit to be rather emotional, even more so when the rainbow appeared as they have a special personal meaning for me. Have you visited the exhibition, either the original at The Tower of London in 2014 or one of the UK Tour exhibits? Do share your thoughts about this exhibition.
Information below is from the Official 14-18 Now Website
14-18 NOW is presenting the iconic poppy sculptures Wave and Weeping Window at selected locations around the UK until 2018.
See the 2017 locations.
See the 2016 locations.
Weeping Window is a cascade comprising several thousand handmade ceramic poppies seen pouring from a high window to the ground below; Wave is a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks. These two sculptures, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper, marking the centenary of the outbreak of war, are now brought to audiences at venues across the country by 14-18 NOW as part of the Poppies tour. As with all 14-18 NOW projects, the presentation of these sculptures to new audiences across the UK aims to prompt a new, nationwide dialogue around the legacy of the First World War.
