Spirit of ANZAC

Centenary Experience

at Melbourne’s Exhibition Centre.Spirit-of-ANZAC_8500

 Australian troops at The Great Pyramid of Giza.

Visitors can look through the ‘cameras’ and

the names of soldiers appear in the viewfinder.

Spirit-of-ANZAC_8499This picture is well-known because

not all of the soldiers are alive.

One died the day before this shot was taken

and his mates gave him a helping hand

so he could have his photo taken with them.

Visitors receive an iPod and headphones

before entering the exhibition.

Each time one enters a new section appropriate

commentary commences.

The exhibition is travelling around Australia

culminating in Sydney in June next 2017.

Click this  link to see if it is coming to a city near you

Allow a couple of hours to view it (slowly).

Sponsored by

The Victorian Government and Telstra (our major Telco)

this exhibition is free,

although you are asked to book tickets.

Visitors are allowed to take cameras into the exhibit,

although flash photography is banned.

I was also given permission to by Telstra

use my photos in Social Media.

Might be the closest I will ever get…liberty_0557

to the real thing.

I found this outside the Titanic Restaurant

in Melbourne’s, Williamstown suburb.

It raises slightly towards the end of the night,

to give diners/Titanic survivors

an idea of the view as the

Carpathia sails into New York.

Which Way Challenge-15-Wk-38

~~~~~

For my last

Which Way

contribution,

some photos from

our visit to Williamstown last Thursday.

Williamstown_7793Williamstown is one of Melbourne’s western suburbs.

Williamstown_7784The area we visited was close to the Williamstown Marina…

skyline-melbourne_7726-Bfrom where Melbourne’s skyline is clearly visible.

Just for the record…clouds in this photo have not been added

nor removed from the top two.

I had to check the originals to make sure 🙂

However, the clouds/background

has been darkened to accentuate the skyline.

williamstown_7754I added this shot as it gives an idea of the cloud

building up over the city.  

To the right is Melbourne (previous photo)…

to the left is the area where top photos were taken.

And if you look carefully, waaaaayyyyy in the background,

just visible above the boats is the curve of

 West Gate Bridge.

This bridge was built to clear all traffic problems, etc.,

and collapsed in October 1970 during construction,

killing 35 workers.

October 15 will mark the 45th anniversary of that tragedy.

Farewell

Which Way
