Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

This photo is about much more than regret but I won’t intrude on any feelings you may have. I felt it appropriate especially as many of my blogging friends are from Australia and New Zealand. It was taken at Anzac Cove, Gallipoli.

and this is to show a little more for those who may never have the opportunity to visit.

Last year, soon after I began blogging, I wrote this poem and posted it with another photo. https://lucidgypsy.wordpress.com/2011/06/21/anzac-cove/

  1. My grandfather was a World War II veteran and he fought against the Japanese. I do regret not asking him to talk about the war more. It was just that he was such a formidable character that I probably, at the time, wouldn’t have dreamed of MAKING him do something!

  2. “…. are nowLIVING in the soil” ……….?!?!? Jeez, people will go to great ends to soothe the psychic wounds of those who’ve lost their loved ones to an idiotic military action……… I sure hope humanity learns to quit repeating such shameful, inglorious, egregious losses of lives…………….

  3. What a beautiful way to honor our heroes, the man and women who died for love of country and the freedom we all enjoy. Our thoughts and prayers to all of them and their families whom they left behind…touching and moving my friend…

  4. I have done similar to this. As a free service I used to visit Commonwealth War Graves when I was travelling in Europe on business and take pictures for those who could not visit. Sadly I no longer do this since I retired

  5. I haven’t looked at many posts for this challenge, but I would guess that few will be as appropriate as this one. I particularly like the top photo. The shadows make it.

I would love to hear from you . . .
