"I am an invisible man...
I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids -
and I might even be said to possess a mind.
I am invisible, understand,
simply because people refuse to see me."
The Invisible Man

Oi, I can't read articles such as your Wiki link without tears welling up. This is such a shameful episode in American history (and I speak as an American citizen).ReplyDelete
I know Dina...I feel the same way.Delete
great b&w photo !ReplyDelete
It's a terrific shot. I am quite familiar with Manzanar... and it is a shameful moment in American history.ReplyDelete
Nice shot. Really like the perspective. And it looks great in black and white.ReplyDelete
Excellent shot and effective in BW. I had no idea that this existed, until I saw The Manzanar Fishing Club, a documentary film.ReplyDelete
Interesting....I've not heard of that documentary...Delete
I had no idea this was so close to you. Another dark chapter in our history.ReplyDelete
This is about an hour or so away Woody...straight south on Hwy 395...Delete
Nice angle! And great in black and white!ReplyDelete
Thank you Mama Zen!ReplyDelete
love the graphic lines - very well seen Kathryn and it fits perfect in bw.ReplyDelete
wish you a beautiful week.
Fantastic photo! That was a terrible time. About 25 years ago, while working in Washington DC, the National Museum of American History had a huge exhibit on this subject. It was terrible thing we did, to some VERY patriotic citizens. The most decorated U.S. military unit of all time, was the 442nd. Infantry Regiment during WW2. Ironically, that unit was totally made up of Japanese Americans.ReplyDelete
