Sep. 26, 2016 Hill of Crosses in Lafayette, California, in memory of those killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In Nov., 2006, anti-war activists Jeff Heaton began placing crosses on hill overlooking the Lafayette BART station. About 5,000 crosses dot the hill - ran out of space in 2011. A sign keeps the current total updated - 7,006.
I posted 30 other photos in this flickr album: 2016 Hill of Crosses.
My thoughts on images past and present.
