Remembrance Day

Every year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we pause to remember those men and women who have died or suffered in all wars, conflicts and peace operations. The poppy is the symbol of Remembrance Day and replica poppies are sold by the Royal Canadian Legion to raise money for veterans. Usually on Remembrance day it’s raining, but this year it was cloudy, windy and cold. The ceremony is a wonderful place to take images because of all the interesting people, colours and movement. I tried using a large aperture to create an interesting ‘bokeh’ in my images. There were a number of individuals who needed first aid treatment. I guess standing at attention for a long period of time left some people feeling dizzy.
