They were so Young Yesterday!!

Today Frizz challenge is about “YYY”…

And I have thought about this pic I took thirteen years ago…It was in Arwad, a very small inhabitated island in Syria…

They were Young…May be happY…For sure innocent…

"Thirteen years ago..."

I wonder were they are now…

Even if they ARE at all…

Sixteen? Seventeen years old?…

I wonder what they have seen…

What they have done…

What they have lost…

The pic is a scan of a paper one…And I had written something on the back…

“But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams under your feet;

tread softly, because you tread on my dreams”

William Butler Yeats 

It Is Not Just Another Bridge…

This week Ailsa´s challenge is about Bridges…
I have seen many beautiful bridges in my life…They have been built from Roman times to our contemporary decades..They can be lost in the outskirts of small Spanish villages, or packed with noisy traffic in big modern cities…
But this time I want to pay a tribute…
I want this one to be as well a bridge towards forgotten and suffering people…

I took this pic in 2000, with my manual camera, so I had to scan it…

Aleppo´s Citadel: one of the oldest continuously in habited cities in the World,  its access is granted by this stepped bridge carried by 8 arches.
