Ottawa War Art Photographer | World War One memorial with a fallen lion

A World War One Memorial in Toronto, Ontario

This picture highlights one of three beautifully stone cut lions guarding the 1914-1918 War Memorial located in Toronto, Ontario at the corner of University Avenue and Elm Street. This monument was sculpted by Charles Adamson in 1923, and when I saw this fallen lion in front of a tomb of names I felt a need to photograph it and consider all the symbolism of the moment. The other two lions – not featured here – continue to stand pound, brave and ready behind the fallen. Added to my picture is the Mosaic Tile Texture effect available in Adobe Photoshop CS5.
