Tyne Cot Memorial to the Missing is a burial ground for the dead of the First World War in the Ypres Salient on the Western Front. The cemetery grounds were assigned to the United Kingdom in perpetuity by King Albert I of Belgium in recognition of the sacrifices made by the British Empire in the defence and liberation of Belgium during the war. It is the largest cemetery for Commonwealth forces in the world, for any war. The cemetery and its surrounding memorial are located outside of Passendale, near Ypres in Belgium.

Looking for beauty in the garden...
 
 
 
 
Ophrys apifera: The median lobe of the flower is hairy and similar to the abdomen of a bee, therefore this beauty is also known as The Bee Orchid. The plant is protected in the Benelux. 
 
 
In 1971, Sheila Turner-Seed interviewed Henri Cartier-Bresson and other luminaries for a series of film strips that were lost until her daughter rediscovered them decades later. An amazing story, and a fantastic interview with one of the Magnum founders... I hope you enjoy reading the article in the NYTimes as much as I did. part 1: Henri Cartier-Bresson: Cartier- Bresson: Living and Looking, and part 2: Cartier -Bresson: ‘There Are No Maybes’
