Situated in Central Park, New York City, the Strawberry Fields Memorial was designed by Bruce Kelly. In the centre you can find the ‘Imagine’ mosaic which has become a focal point where people congregate and remember the legendary singer and songwriter: John Lennon. John was sadly murdered just across the street, outside his apartment building on December 8th 1980.
I’d taken this shot before on a previous visit to New York but this image is my personal favourite. I like the angle of the word ‘Imagine’. I took the shot straight on but it just didn’t seem to work the same way this one did. New flowers are placed around the mosaic almost every day but these ones had been there for some time and as a result had been flattened and dried in the hot summer air of New York City.
