The True Cost Of War

The true cost of war should not be measured in damage to bricks and mortar but to the cost of human lives and children who never grow up knowing their parents.

Although this is not my normal style of work the image just popped into my head a few days ago and I just felt an uncontrollable urge to create it in digital format ... so here it is, the futility and true cost of war.

All created in Photoshop by photo-manipulation and plenty of lighting and filter work.

Tony, this is so powerful, so absolutely right on. The keychain carry is a tiny version of the old 60's poster, "War is not healthy for children and other living things. Thank you for doing this; it should be required viewing.
