Samford RSL Veterans

Shot after the service at Samford today. The lighting was less than idea, but it was way too windy to setup a brolly and I was lacking an assistant to hold a flash off to the right.

See where this picture was taken.

    Did this go to a newspaper??

    I shot an ANZAC day service in London last week, done it for the last six years.

    My best shot was last year, you can find it in my pool if you interested?

    'fraid not, Lots of ceremonies going on across the country and Samford doesn't rate much in the grand scheme of things, and the local publications' 'tog was there too. Still, it's one for the portfolio :)

    Is there much in the way of ceremony in London ?

    Where I work, in West London, there is an ANZAC cemetary there that dates back to 1917. A military hospital was founded nearby to care for ANZAC soldiers wounded whilst fighting in Gallipoli. It still exists today, as an NHS hospital.
    There is an ANZAC ceremony here every year.

    Good to hear that even way over there the ANZACs are remembered :)
