Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~

I took a drive to Point Lonsdale lighthouse

on Monday morning.

Unfortunately there was too much cloud

for good sunrise photos.

 

Capturing the suns rays on the water was

the pick of the bunch…just because

I was able to do so.

However, the lighthouse is still

the draw card for me.

Black and White Tuesday

~~~~~

On a foggy morning last week…

I took a drive out to the Moorabool Valley…

which I think is a great place to find numerous subjects.

 

I must confess that on this day, or this set of photos,

it was difficult to tell a Black and White

from the colour version.

Black and White Tuesday

Fromelles War Cemetery where the remains

of soldiers recently found in mass graves,

in nearby Pheasant Wood,

are interred.

Entrance to Fromelles War Grave Cemetery.

 The middle grave in the front (foreground) row,

with the Australian flag,

belongs to MGW’s cousin’s uncle…

18-year-old Private Justin Hercules Breguet.

And….because MGW and her cousin share

the same (Breguet) grandmother,

Justin is MGW’s uncle also.

Not sure if it is correct to talk in he first person of someone

who died 100 years ago…

 

but it does seem correct.

Apologies to students of the English language.

As you can see the War Graves are attached to the

Fromelles General Cemetery,

so a visit to Fromelles,

is a visit to the fallen soldiers as well.

No excuses.

We purchased, or should I say MGW purchased,

these cups/mugs…
at Johannesburg airport three or four years ago.

 Not just cups but a matching vase…

which was nicely decorated with some form water plant.

In Amsterdam last year we came upon

this display of tea cups in a coffee shop.

Black and White Tuesday

I don’t like the idea of recycling graves

every hundred years or so.

However when we see a grave like this,

 the last internment being in 1922 and

the family name being out of the district for many years,

it is hard to put forward an argument against recycling.

 However, in country cemeteries the pressure

for recycling is nowhere near as great as in major cities.

Older graves appear to be marked by a once ornate fence.

 

Graves of what may be an original settler

have only a marker like this.

It is doubtful if the occupant even has

a name recorded in the cemetery’s records.
