Weekly Photo Challenge: LETTERS (Heroes)

Letters alone mean nothing. The power of letters comes from the meanings people attach to it. It is the same with names. For a visitor of the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, the names etched on this Wall of Honour may just be strangers, merely symbolical, or just a collection of letters. For a family member of one of these heroes, the name could be a father’s, a husband’s, a brother’s, a son’s.  In time for the April 25th’s ANZAC Day, I dedicate this week’s challenge to the Australian heroes of war since the the Gallipoli Campaign of 1915 up to today’s international peacekeeping efforts. We remember not only your names but, more importantly, your enduring and altruistic contribution to mankind’s history.

  1. Hugely moving. The contrast between the stone and the vibrant red of the poppies is both beautiful and stark. Much symbolism packed into this photo. I love it.
