Shadow Shot Sunday - Anzac Day ( Australia New Zealand Army Corp)

SToday, here in New Zealand and in Australia it is Anzac Day, our nations day to remember the men and women who have fought in wars both past and present and who will not be coming home. Those men and women who fought, and still fight, so that we can have the freedom that we so often take for granted.

My SSS photos were taken at the Memorial Service held here in Waiuku. Every year the service gets bigger and bigger.

The empty seats waiting for the Veterans to arrive, soon to be filled with men and women with memories of events most of us could not comprehend.

A glimpse of one of the wreaths casting a shadow on the memorial steps.

'We will remember them' my grandad was a driver in WW2 - lied about his age, he survived. Very poignant shadow. Thanks for your visit.
