About ANZAC Day 2007, I found this Digger deep in thought about the mates that still lay where they fell in the second world war, as well as those that have passed over time. Many had fond memories of their mates and their times together and were willing to tell their tales, especially to another digger.

Love this shot Jason. He does look deep in thought and you can see the sadness in his eyes as he remembers his fallen mates.

i am very glad that they were there and kicked the nazi-scum out of my country. and my generation takes care, that those bastards don`t rise again.

i promise that to those old man !

The digger will live on longer than any of us, their memory will still be here when we are not, reminding all who come after us why we can do what we do. thanks for the words Robert they are always welcomed cheer Jason

Thanks Gary, the good thing is as the Diggers pass on, their families are taking up the march to ensure that their memories, and why they were there lives on.

cheer Jason

This was one of the first days that i didn't have to march or work ANZAC Day (still a serving member) so I made it a point to get out and photograph the day, this shot sums up the whole experience for me, thanks for your words Doyle cheers Jason

Excellent Jason...wonderful portrait of this man!Great face expression!I like also to read your about!!A lot of emotions on this shot.
Very well done.

this shot made me think...Indeed history and eyes are two insparable elements...
this Shot is a good proof for how a digger look can go through our bloods and feelings...

Well Done...
Very nice about... Brief and Deep...

All the bests....
Good on your passion for what history and eyes narrate about...

Nice one Jason. This one tells a very emotional story. Nice B&W conversion. I like the crop, brings the attention to the old man's face.:)

Great image and great story. The Australian people lost more men/women per capita than any other nation during WWII and all of these men/women were volunteers! To echo your title this should never be forgotten, nor the number of sons and daughters who willingly gave the ultimate sacrifice from this island.

Both Doyle and Gary have worded my thoughts brilliantly. Thoughts that were evoked by your image Jason. Well done!


Billy Bloggs Billy Bloggs   {K:51043} 4/25/2007
I never used to think much of Anzac Day, it was just a long weekend. But as I get older I get glimpses of what it must mean to the diggers, whose numbers must be dwindling. With this image you've shown this guy the dignity and respect he deserves.
Regards, Gary

Awesome Jason. Brilliant capture of the nostalgia . . . Excellent focal clarity on the all important eyes . . . and the feeling that these eyes can still see what was . . . as well as what is. Poignant capture! My Uncle Doyle lost his leg and was 120% disabled in WW II's Battle of the Bulge (Argonne Woods). None of his four brothers survived Wars.

These people have memories which cannot be communicated since words are incapable. But images . . . such as yours . . . can convey more than the words alone. I would have preferred a looser crop . . . too tight (for my taste) top and right . . . but that's personal preference. The shot is quality work!
