Lines of Sadness

Lines of Sadness

This photo shows lines of red poppies against names on the Roll of Honour at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. It’s a particularly moving place to visit and just in case you didn’t know, it was ANZAC Day here on 25 April.

Poppies adorn the panels of the Memorial’s Roll of Honour, placed beside names as a small personal tribute to the memory of a particular person, or to any of the thousands of individuals commemorated there. This practice began at the interment of the Unknown Australian Soldier on 11 November 1993. Source

This week, share a photo with a composition dominated by lines — hard or soft, straight or curvy, vertical or horizontal, or made in nature or as part of a cityscape. 


Lest we forget.

      Thanks, it’s a very sombre time and I thought it fitted the theme quite well.
