    Well, it looks like I'm a year behind on everything at the moment.
    Here are a couple of shots from last year's ANZAC day here in Brisbane.

    It's a public holiday on the 25th April for remembering those who died at war, especially in Gallipoli. There a services in every Australian city and parades in the big ones where all the old diggers get out and walk, or are driven down the main streets.

    I especially like the first one with capturing the motion.
    opps and you have a little typo in your post, it should read the 25th April

    I like the 2nd image but wish the shadow wasn't present on the little boy's face.

    I remember...last year in Auckland, New Zealand, when 10,000 turned up on ANZAC Day for what is called the "Dawn Parade". The old soldiers and all head to the memorial for a very quiet ceremony at 6 o´clock in the morning, as the sun rises...but this time in unbelievable rain... When they played "The Last Post" one of the oldest collapsed and died of a heart attack in front of the memorial (someone said there´s a death like this almost every year).

    Very serious stuff...
    Here´s a shot when nearly everyone had left...
