This was another ‘stumble on’ find in Salzburg. As we walked across the Staatsbrucke I stopped to take some photos of the castle. When we started to move again, I noticed the reflective block at the end of the bridge. Looking closer, I realised that it was a memorial to the prisoners of war who were forced to build the bridge during the Second World War.

I like the elegance of the memorial design; the simplicity and depth of the words; and the way that life around reflects back at you as you look at it.
It was a hand-held shot at night, so I’m surprised that it worked at all.
