NC Pt.VI - Photo ops are timeless

Along the Normandy landing beaches are many memorials commemorating D-Day in 1944. In case you’re unfamiliar with the whole scenario, here’s the Wikipedia entry on Operation Overlord, as the Battle of Normandy was codenamed.

The image above is of photos attached to walls next to one of the large monuments along the coast. I like the way they put them up without any sort of protection, apparently years ago, and they are still there. Goes to show that there are some things immune to vandalism.

Or they just put up new ones every year and wipe them with wet tea bags to make them look old.
