Weekly Photo Challenge-Lines

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Lines

~~~~~

With yesterday’s ANZAC Day commemorations

still fresh in our memories I have continued

the ANZAC theme today with a brief visit to

Tyne Cot Military Cemetery

in Belgium.

Some 34,000 names of soldiers who perished

and have never been found, line to wall of

Tyne Cot Cemetery.   

These 34,000 are names which could not

fit on Menin Gate

 

The steps also make good lines this week.

Apart from names on the wall there are also…

the graves of 11,900…

 

of British Empire, as it was then known, 

service personnel who perished

during the Great War.

As we approach ANZAC Day I thought of some

of the memorials and cemeteries visited last year. 

Toronto Avenue Cemetery.

Prowse Point Cemetery, Belgium

A cemetery dedicated to the soldiers

of the German Army, near Bullecourt.

An American Cemetery…

also in the Bullecourt region.

 

 

 Polygon Woods Cemetery.

Merricourt Cemetery.

 

 

 Fromelles Military  Cemetery.

Polygon Woods Cemetery.

Australian Memorial Villers Bretonneux.

Lest We Forget.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Tilted

~~~~~~

I think my first entry is the best today…

it actually has he name of the establishment

within a tilted frame.

 I suspect my camera shutter was

accidentally pressed as this one does not work.

My camera was certainly not level…but

was it titled or just vertical with a twist?

I cannot remember but I think it works.

 

 Toronto Avenue Cemetery and to take this photo

required some manoeuvring to get

the sun behind the cross

and all of the cross in the frame.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Way

 

 

Way

While searching for this week’s post…

I found this sight-seeing bus…a way

for visitors to see Melbourne.

York’s signpost pointed the way to

various point in the city…

as did these signs on a

Freeway/Autobahn in Germany.

While visiting Fromelles we had to walk down this path…

to see the site of the Fromelles mass graves

which were recently exhumed and created

the Fromelles Military Cemetery.

 

Finally, this is the way to the

Toronto Avenue Military Cemetery

in Belgium.

Weekly Photo Challenge-Favorite-Place

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Favorite Place…

~~~~~

Considering I have a prepared post for the

Tuesday Photo Challenge

of my favourite local places…

I decided to post some favourite European places.

 

The hands down winner for this title goes to

Het Zand Square in Brugge.

I’m not sure if it was the first mainland

European city we stopped at…

 or the fact that I managed some half decent

night shots of the square and fountain.

 

Arras, Bell Tower

Last year it was the Place des Heros and the Bell Tower,

in Arras which won my heart.

And after hearing about Menin Gate from my Father

it was with joy and sadness I visited sites along

the Western Front that were synonymous

with my Grandfather’s World War  I war service.

  Tomorrow are favourite local places

posted in

Tuesday Photo Challenge.

Particularly bad graphic card troubles this morning.

I do hope all photos are sharp.

I will check and change photos if necessary.

Not a great variety of bikes this week.

However, they come from many locations.

On display at a nearby market day a few years back.

 

Some of Melbourne’s ‘rent a bike’ collection.

 

Brugge bikes.

Amsterdam.

MGW was nearly run down by

a motor scooter similar to this one.

It ran a red light.

After this incident we were told

the lights were/are only a ‘suggestion’ 🙂

 

Tower of London ‘rent a bike’ collection.

The peloton nearing the end of the

Cadel Evans Classic last year.

Support vehicles and bikes.

 

Four laps of Geelong to go.

 Sorrento, Naples, motorbikes

Some more

Western Front flowers…

from Belgium’s….

Tyne Cot Military Cemetery.

 Finally, considering this post

is being published on

Saint Patrick’s Day…

I thought some clover may be in order,

even if it’s not the four-leaf variety.

Now I just hope he brings the moisture

with him during the next few days.
