      Belles photos et émotionnelle, mon ami.
      J'adore tous, mais nombre dix possède une qualité particulière à celle-ci. Le soleil éclatant de derrière les nuages est si plein de promesses.
      Cela me rappelle le film "Un long dimanche de fiançailles» - avez-vous vu?

      What a beautiful tribute to France's fallen. #1 & 10 are stunning and I also like the effects of some of the others. Good to see tomie paying homage as well. :)

      #11 is so sweet to see Tomie paying tribute to the fallen!

      Sad that time takes away the ones that lived the experience. He lived a long, long life. Wonderful tribute in photos you have posted.
