Weekly Photo Challenge: Monumental…

Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance

With Anzac Day next week, I could think of nothing better to photograph for the weekly photo challenge than Melbourne’s Shrine of Remembrance and eternal flame.

The eternal flame

The eternal flame

I’ve wanted to take photos of this place for so long and the opportunity popped up yesterday and I just had to take it. Preparations were already being made for next Fridays’ Anzac Day ceremony, with soon to be tens of thousands of people swarming the site for the dawn service. The kids seemed to have some idea of the buildings’ significance, though they still ran and shouted about, so ‘sacred building etiquette’ is clearly a lesson still to be learnt!
