“A picture says a thousand words….” The words “Lest we forget” conjure up thousands of images….although this picture has a tale – it’s 5pm and as they do every day at this time it’s the closing ceremony. The Commemorative Courtyard is full, there is an uneasy silence…..a lone piper plays a lament in front of the great Hall of Memory and while playing turns, enters the hall and the doors are shut, the lament continues….muffled….then silence

    Poignant shot, paul. Thanks for adding the ceremony moments, adds so much to the image.

  • Thanks Merrilyn. The photo by itself is a given that “everyone” who visits takes….as you said its the story behind it that makes it different. I like RedBubble for being able to add that element!
