Default Australia remembers its fallen - ANZAC Day

G'day all

Every year on April 25th, Australia celebrates ANZAC day - the joining of the World war -1 Australian & New Zealand Army Corps ... the diggers who fought and died for their country. In Australia's case, the date celebrates the nation's biggest military defeat [we're the only country world-wide who celebrates their biggest military defeat], which is now credited as forming the brotherhood of a [then] very young nation. The venue was Gallipolli in Turkey.

I joined several thousand others on a fine sunny morning to pay homage to our military stalwarts who have returned from one war or another, and be with them as they remembered fallen comrades

I decided to go into 'photo-journalist' mode and actually approach people and talk to them before asking to take their photos. During the march obviously I couldn't do it, but before & after I did so. Here's some of the results

1- Flags on parade

2- This delightful old fella headed the main part of the parade

3- Waiting for his mates to arrive

exif- Panny FZ-200; f3,2 x 1/60s; 240mm [film camera equiv]; ISO-200

4- Just part of the crowd before the march

exif- Panny FZ-200; f3,2 x 1/250s; 270mm [film camera equiv]; ISO-200

5- Getting out of the sun once it's over

exif- Panny FZ-200; f3,2 x 1/160s; 620mm [film camera equiv]; ISO-100

6- Spectators one and all

exif- Panny FZ-200; f3,2 x 1/200s; 100mm [film camera equiv]; ISO-200
