Created by artist/design Paul Cummins and Tom Piper. When complete 888,246 ceramic poppies will progressively fill the Tower’s famous moat over the summer. Each representing a British military fatality during the war.
Here is a before/after from the heavy editing in photoshop. There were thousands of people jostling for glimpse of the poppy field and setting up a tripod was completely out of the question. I seized the opportunity when I saw a gap in the crowd and took a quick snap from the bridge.
