I shall commence with an image

which may not quite fit.

on the outskirts of Rotorua

I was going to use some

graffiti style street art

however, walked another path.

Near the

El Alamein Fountain,

King Cross, Sydney,

Australia.

The ‘Gate of Violence’

In the middle of Albertina Platz is the walk-in monument sculpture.

The Monument against War and Fascism

was unveiled in 1988 to preserve the memory

of the darkest era in Austrian history

and is dedicated to all victims of war and fascism.

Two continents…two unexpected beauties.

The Million Dollar view

at Banff,

Canada

One place I did not to expect to be so beautiful

was on the Somme Battlefields in France.

After having lived on a farm for most of my life…

 

I found the fields around the

Villers Bretonneux Australian Memorial…

unexpectedly beautiful.

On

ANZAC DAY

I felt it appropriate to feature

Flanders Field poppies.

It wasn’t until my visit to the Western Front in 2017

that I realised how prolific these poppies are.

Like wildflowers turning fields of battle red.

Found on

the Somme Battlefields

of France.

ANZAC Spirit

(Australian & New Zealand Army Corps)

During my 2017 visit

to the World War I

Western Front Battlefields,

…I often saw this, but…

 

 

felt that someone was watching

over us as we toured.

ANZAC Day

April 25.

The Good Friday plans of many Parisians and tourists alike

were shattered on Monday when…

Notre Dame de Paris burned.

Approximately 30,000 people visit

Notre Dame de Paris everyday.

And likely thousands more visit

over the Easter period.

It is unlikely that any, of the many Easter services

and celebrations will be conducted

anywhere near Notre Dame, this year.

I think these are some of the statues of

the Twelve Apostles, plus four Evangelists,

which surrounded the Spire.

These had all been removed only

a day or two prior to he fire.

Today, Good Friday appears to bring some good news

as far as items saved are concerned.

Let us all be thankful for small mercies.
