there's a mourning tradition to leave flowers where people died.

This is a fantastic photo :3
I have always been interested in such things as foreign conflict, and lately I have been researching the riots in Ukraine.
This is a great and meaningful shot regarding what is happening.

I have been writing a story on the riots, and this helped me out, so I thank you~ c:

Some pictures are worth far more than a thousand words. This is one of them.

Oh my... this picture is really hard to look at, but I think it is a great view on showing how messed up the world is... this is a great photo, and I'm glad you got that well deserved DD.

The thumbnail is very misleading, but I suppose that is what makes this a striking photo - isolated and small, the image is blurred and even gives the impression of aesthetic beauty.

Upon seeing it fully, enlarged and in focus, the reality strikes you. The devastation, sorrow, and sheer dirtiness become overly apparent. Look closer, past the tires, smoke, trash bags, and fire extinguishers and you will spot red flower bouquets contesting (and failing) for your attention amidst everything else.

Right now, there is devastation but that persistent hope stands its ground.

Interesting - over 200 views and barely 6 comments - A clear sign noone knows what to say regarding this conflict.
Neither do I - I just hope all will be solved with a minimum of violence...

A magnificent picture with a surprising perspective!:clap: A very well deserved DD!:heart:

What did you expect from civilian made barricades? Concrete walls and barbed wire? :P
