Always Remembered

Square Perspectives Photo Challenge ~ Australian Landscapes #17

Destination: Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

In October and November 2018, the grounds of the Australian War Memorial in Canberra were transformed in a spectacular commemoration of the centenary of the end of World War One.

62,000 handcrafted poppies, created and donated by people from all around the world, spread across the lawns of the memorial in a sea of red.

Each unique poppy represented an Australian who died in the service of their country during the Great War.

At a time when Australia’s population was fewer than five million, a loss of 62,000 was immense.

Lest We Forget

 

While our travel plans are on hold I’m joining in every day with Becky’s July Square Perspectives Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules are simple: photos must be square and fit the theme of perspective. My posts represent the definition of perspective as a vista – seeing something over distance or time.
