Here is a statue of an Australian World War 1 Digger. He is complete with slouch hat, khakis, and rifle.

Every Australian suburb and town has a War Memorial, on which are inscribed the names of the local men who served in various wars. Each year on ANZAC day (April 25), services and are held and wreaths are laid at the memorials.

Dedicated to my gt-uncle and all those who have served.

Thirroul, NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D, as is.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.

    That’s a really great picture, Michael. The light, the colour, the composition, added to what you have written here, and the emotion behind it, really adds together to become one terrific photo.

    Believe it or not, my wedding anniversary is on ANZAC Day… Lest we forget… :) (And I say that with respect. :) )
