all looks and peaceful in your serene shot, Bill.
fifteen minutes before logging into SC, i was actually reading on Damascus, it appears to me that in its long history, it has not really known much peace.
Bill Phillips: I suspect that is true of a lot of the middle east Ayush
A very nicely composed image, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks E.

Nicely composed, Bill.

If it was a paintball gun then you could paint the village pink!
Bill Phillips: It might be an improvement
Joli canon qui a fait des ravages.
Bill Phillips: This one will never be fired!

I love this point of view and those numbers are very telling...
Bill Phillips: When compared with WW1 which was 2.4 % ...admittedly the population then was 42 million

Looks as if it's going to lob a shell over onto the unsuspecting Malverns..
Bill Phillips: Be lucky to hit that house
When you say it like that, Bill, it really does blow the mind!
Bill Phillips: In percentage terms WW1 was 2.4%

That is a huge percentage, Bill. What an impact it must have had on everyday lives when things got back to normal
Bill Phillips: It is quite mind boggling Lisl especially when you think it was 2.4% of the population in WW1

I understand why the Civil War is mentioned so often - your composition looks rather peaceful.
Bill Phillips: A far cry from all those years ago Philine

Crikey! That's a sobering thought,. I think people on the hills in the distance are safe from the gun fire.
Bill Phillips: They could sleep easy in Malvern
Fine shot, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thank you kindly Tom

Oh well, people must like doing this stuff - that is why it never stops. And they had such "inventive" ways of killing each other off.
Bill Phillips: No end to mankind's ability to find more and more efficient ways of killing each other
Lined up on that bedroom window, I trust they manage to sleep safely in their beds smile
Bill Phillips: Hahaha Good job it isn't a real cannon
Nice shot and music. I like the sunlight in the shot as well as it's 'in your face' composition.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Mary. I have only recently "discovered" Chris Smither

A great POV, and sobering facts about the numbers who lost their lives.
Bill Phillips: Isn't it? Imagine how many that would be today if the percentage was the same!
