A really great capture!
thank you x
Are they memorial ribbons?
yes, they are. they are on the railings of a church in new york, the marble collegiate church on 5th avenue. the gold ribbons, display names, ranks, and ages of thousands of american service people who have lost their lives, and they represent the prayers for the surviving families and friends. they are read out loud each sunday morning and then their names are attached to the ribbons and attached to the fence with the others.
Lovely photo missus xx
thought it was appropriate as their names are read out on a sunday x
Great photo of the memorial ribbons.
so many of them, this was just one small section
Great capture x
many thanks x
Beautiful. Gave me goosebumps
if you saw how many were tied to the church you certainly would have goosebumps
Stunning photo, such a great perspective 🙂 x
just a small silent tribute to all of those who’s golden ribbons are tied to the church
Very interesting photo, just read that they are memorial ribbons, so it makes it sad, but it is still nice to remember them! x
just around the other side there were blue and green ones too. the blue ribbons for the families and friends iraqis who have lost their lives and the green ribbons representing the prayers for peace in the middle east.
beautiful photo xx
thanking you x
wow what a great photo! the bright against the grey is very poigant, so many lives lost 🙁 x
so many, i cant tell you how many golden ribbons were attached to these railing and i’m sure that is just a fraction of the truth. very sad indeed
A beautiful memorial!
it completely surrounds the church, it makes you stop and take a moment to think of all the brave soldiers
Beautiful image, very moving.
it certainly is very moving, if only there was peace.
Very poignant, is this at WTC site?
no it’s at a church on 5th avenue, outside the hotel where i stay and not far from the empire state building. the gold ribbons make such a statement against the stone work.
Woah, a wonderful shot, and a very poignant story behind it.
shame that this story has to be told x
Stunning photo x
for all those who have lost their lives x
What a great way to remember lost love ones, very poignant photo.
they stand out so bright in their memory
Great shot, I love the perspective. Touching story too,
it’s how you see them walking down the street, an ongoing sea of golden ribbons
Beautiful photo. What a great idea for a memorial.
Lovely idea isn’t it? So vibrant
Really so poignant and so sad. Great capture x
big mix of emotions x
What a beautiful photo
for beautiful people that have given their lives x
A beautiful tribute
it is, but there shouldn’t be a tribute in the first place
Great shot. So sad all those you men who have given their lives……
and this will only be such a small percentage too x
Beautiful shot, very moving
a golden silent sunday
Great capture 🙂
many thanks x
Wow! So many yellow ribbons – great memorial idea.
There shouldn’t be so many should there, but yes a wonderful way to remember them by x
