Nagorno-Karabakh / Places We Go

Photo Of The Day: A Casualty Of The Nagorno-Karabakh War

Nagorno-Karabakh war casualty

I took this picture while visiting the front line of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The front line is strewn with the wreckage of the machines of war, but for some reason this lone armored personnel carrier (APC), flipped on its side amidst a field of flowers, resonated with me.

Perhaps it serves as some sort of testament to the resiliency of life? Or perhaps it is the opposite message and instead symbolizes the savage nature of humanity in even such a bucolic setting?

The area is heavily mined and so I didn’t get any closer, but I think it is more powerful when viewed from afar anyway.
