Anzac Square Memorial, still covered in wreaths from Anzac Day.  ISO100, 18mm, f/10, 15s.

15 second memorial

The beautiful sandstone Anzac Square Memorial is still covered with wreaths from Anzac Day on 25 April.

These two pictures are 15 second exposures in early evening.  I’ve been doing quite a lot of long exposure shooting lately and I think these bring out the best of the Memorial.

I thought about showing them in b & w – they look great in b & w, but it’s not fair to lose  the colour of that sandstone!

Last Anzac Day post for this year – I promise – but since I walk past this Memorial 10 times a week (it’s right above the CBD train station in Brisbane), probably not the last time I’ll photograph it :).

If you want more of a story about the history of Anzac Day, check out this blog post at Tragicomedia, which includes a quote by Kemal Ataturk which I can never read aloud without choking up, and some great Anzac Day people photos (quite a style contrast to these ones).
