a photo a day from germany's capital city
Good never to forget.
Quite a collection, and it makes for a visually compelling shot.
Very interesting. I see several Jewish names there.
I don't see your name.Yet.
Memory stones for people who died from Aids.
Ooooops! You probably won't be seeing it there, Jack. Maybe elsewhere... ;-)
Yikes! I thought it was a place to honor artists. I missed the HIV/AIDS reference. So embarrassed and so sorry.
And I see there's room for more!
Oh, NO artists walk of fame these stones are to remember people who died of Aids. Some are known , other are private stones . Nothing to do eith Jews.
If you look and read some names you will.see Miles Davis, Keith Haring
Fine photoALOHA from Honolulu,ComfortSpiral =^..^=
For those who want to read about this project , the artist who initiated this is Tom Fecht.
It has also a bit of a graveyard memorial outlook but I assume thats the goal of the designer.
i like that...the different fonts and the grass between the stones...nice!
I like it. We have a similar walk just outside out zoo. They sold the bricks as a fund raising ploy and now there are thousands of them covering the walk that leads to the zoo.
Did you read above what it means ? Halycon.changed the title which first said "?Artist walk of fame."
Unfortunately, there was no sign outside to let people know what these stones signify. :(Thanks for the information... hope the new link will clear up the confusion.
Not only artists, unknown persons can.command a memorial stone with the name of a child, husband , friend.I am bit angry cause I have private stones there and photos are taken without explaining first what this place means. So Jack is wondering why there is not yet the name of Halycon . I'm shockef.
Sad, but also pretty in a way, - beautiful letters, and I like the fact that all the stones are the same size.
Never forgotten and these stones should be respected too. Thanks for sharing.Mary, MI
An AIDS quilt in stone! Tom The Backroads Traveller
I think you're right!
I think it's great to see the names in their own languages.
Too many. Everywhere. So sad, but this is a lovely way to memorialize and honor these artists.
Very sad , but a lovey memorial ......
A nice memorial.
A powerful memorial.
Very nice.My SIGNS, SIGNS
