In Remembrance by 888rachel

In Remembrance

Today is ANZAC Day in Australia, and we pause to remember all those who have served their country. Not only those who have fallen, but those who are currently serving. I saw a wreath today for someone who was Killed In Action in 2009, aged only 21. Sadly, these wars still go on and take our young from us.
what a beautiful image Rachel

This is like our memorial day which we celebrate next month I believe only we remember everyone who has passed, so maybe more like Veterans day.

Very beautiful picture - I like the strong diagonal and the warmth in the flowers and the hand against the grey background. Both tragic and full of hope at the same time. Beautiful.

Gorgeous capture

Moving photo.

A lovely image... I really like how you caught the reflection of the youthful hand, putting the poppy up as a tribute. Very poignant. I fear we will never learn how to get past the sad lessons of conflict. :(

A wonderful composition for the memorial, and great way of capturing the reflection, which the day is all about. I agree -- all this killing of the young has to stop!
