Beachy Head - Fence
Der 162 m hohe Felsen ist berüchtigt, weil er oft zum Suizid dient. Ein chaplaincy team (Seelsorger-Team) hält sich tagsüber und abends durchgehend hier auf, um potentielle Selbstmörder zurückzuhalten und zu betreuen. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beachy_Head

Diese hier sind nicht die einzigen Kreuze an der Abbruchkante des Beachy Head.
Als ich dort, auf dem stark frequentierten Wanderweg unterwegs war, saß neben einem solchen Kreuz direkt an der Felskante ein Mann und starrte wie versteinert in die Ferne. 2 Stunden später, auf dem Rückweg, saß er noch immer regungslos dort. Es schien Trauer zu sein...
Ich habe noch heute das entsetzliche, unbeschreibliche, ohnmächtige Gefühl in mir, das dieser Anblick auslöste...

HFF??

"Worldwide, the landmark's suicide rate is surpassed only by the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco ..."
Here, the media do not report suicides because it is believed that it inspires others.
They are just starting to install a barrier (nets underneath the bridge) in the hope this will prevent people from jumping.
Of course, anyone who really wants to kill themselves will do so. However, places like this can provoke people (especially young, drunk people) into doing something they might regret on the way down. Occasionally someone survives the jump from the GGB and has reported this.

C'est pour ça que l'image est si sombre ? Devant un tel paysage, il y a des personnes qui sont émerveillées par la beaute , d'autres ne voient rien qu'une seule chose : leur intérieur ... Un intérieur sans lendemain.... Et oui, on ne peut guère changer l'état d'âme de qq d'autre ...il y en a qui ont essayé ...
Bonne journée quand même

Its a place of many moods. I used to walk the cliffs with my family as a child.

There is much beauty there to lift the soul but much darkness is there too.

Trotz alldem, das Leben geht weiter. Ich denke heute, nach genau einem Jahr, auch an die Menschen von Barcelona, die dort bei dem hinterhältigen Anschlag ihr Leben lassen mußten.

Deine düstere Bearbeitung passt! Wer will, wird dort immer an den Patrouillen vorbeikommen, immer noch "besser" als vor den Zug werfen. Für die Hinterbliebenen ist alles gleich schlimm...
Dennoch, ein schönes Wochenende!

aber man bringt nicht noch einen Lokführer um den "Verstand", das stimmt, auch wenn es trotzdem einen Finder gibt der einen Schock haben wird. Aber für die Umwelt "freundlicher", wenn man es so ausdrücken darf, finde ich auch

A sad tale of our times Gisela. As a person who has walked several times past these flowered memorials on Beachy Head I know how sad it is to dwell on the reasons. I have seen such memorials on several of our high clifftop paths. Co-incidentally, I have just uploaded a few of Beach Head onto my Ipernity: www.ipernity.com/doc/1081863/47131842

HFF, and have a great weekend.

It's a strange and sad thing that certain places become popular as suicide venues. This is a lovely tribute to all those lost souls Gisela.

The right to oneself put an end to what became unbearable... and the sadness or guilt or both of those who could not avoid it or did not see it coming...

A FF without the H I would say Gisela. I have been here and seen the memorials at the places where loved ones have leapt to their deaths. You get a strange feeling of awe just being there and seeing these tributes. You have captured the sombre mood excellently.
Have a great weekend.

The subdued lighting captures the mood wonderfully. HFF ? yes because although we are names on a computer screen we are concerned about the well being of those names, and our photos sometimes have to show the realities of life.
i hope you have a nice weekend Gisela

How terrible that people feel this is the only solution to their problems Gisela and your story tugs at the heartstrings. I like how you have captured the sadness in the darkness of the image. A belated HFF. Have a good weekend

Sadly there were a total of ten bodies found in the Beachy Head area in June this year alone, with seven of those in one week, according to a report in a local paper. Some were single individuals, but some were apparently connected to each other. People travel quite a distance to end their lives there. It must be heart-breaking for the Coastguards and RNLI lifeboat crews who have to recover the bodies, as well, of course, for those left behind.

spesso la bellezza sublime di un luogo sembra richiamare anche da molto lontano , come un eco per noi terribile ,ma per loro forse di dolce conforto, le persone che vogliono porre fine alla loro esistenza.
