The brief this week from Tara at Sticky Fingers was to take a picture on November the 11th 2011 and post it.
11.11.11 is pretty cool as far as dates go isn't it. It would have made a great shot to take a picture of the date and time on my mobile phone at 11.11 but guess what? I didn't think of that. I saw a freind posted one on facebook and then I tried to reset my clock on my phone to sort of well, fake it. But a) I messed up the date format totally and b) that would be cheating really.
Instead I took The Princess into town where there was a Armistice Day parade and I took this photo after the event when everyone had gone back to their day to day business. It was the first time I had really taken notice of the mosiac tile plaques in the pavement just in front of the Memorial. They are really beautifully detailed depicting the Royal British Legion, The Polish Parachute Brigade Lincolnshire and the Royal Air Force to name just a few.
Here she is examining the Royal British Legion which was her favourite due to the sparkly eyes on the lion.
I look forward to seeing all the other entries in The Gallery.
nice photo - of course I completely failed to sum the day up in one photo but this does perfectly.ReplyDelete
Perfectly summed up. I find the silence at 11 on the 11th really moving every year.ReplyDelete
Perfect photograph to mark the day, beautiful and very moving. I ended up with a whole series of photographs...!ReplyDelete

You'd only be cheating yourself!ReplyDelete
It's a lovely picture and really captures the mood.
That's a lovely thoughtful photo.ReplyDelete
Oh yes, what lovely tiles - always good to wait until the fuss is over to get a proper look - thats why I'm always late!ReplyDelete
Such a lovely photo you have caught her looking - so sweet and a very unusual paving slab xReplyDelete
Gorgeous photo, I love the way she's looking at the lion and it's a brilliant mosaic tooReplyDelete
You captured a beautiful moment, lovely pic. Love the colour combos too with your daughter's jacket and hood reflecting the poppies and her leggings reflecting the lion mosaic. It's great.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful picture, definitely sums the day up!ReplyDelete
Such a lovely photo. It completely captures the essence of the day!ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous photo - I think it is so important to teach our children to remember & be thankful for what people did and are doing for us.ReplyDelete
