A time that has died - another one of my favorites...

There is a season for everything under the sun...including death. This is an image I captured while touring the former border of what was then East Germany and the former Soviet country of Czechoslovakia. We toured the border and border guards appeared and watched us using binoculars as we stood there. It was a tense situation as we were warned of making gestures (i.e. waving, saluting, giving the finger, yelling, etc.) as those gestures could lead to war. Hard to believe, but a simple wrong gesture could have been considered an act of war and launched the US into a war with the Soviet Union. Thank God that this time has died. Sometimes it's hard to believe that we made it through this period of time without blowing each other up.
