Thanks to Covid 19 this year's ceremony at the National Cenotaph was very different but just as important as in previous years and maybe even more moving. The public was asked to stay away and watch the ceremony on tv so as a result the plaza that is normally crammed with dignitaries, veterans and other invited guests was sparsely filled with a mere one hundred guests. It was a pared down ceremony with only one band, no parades of veterans and no children's choir but nonetheless it was an extremely relevant event.
As a member of the public, I stayed home but I grabbed a few shots from the tv to show a few moments. This evening I went out and got a night shot of the Unknown Soldier's grave.
At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of this Covid year the guns were fired in remembrance. I live close by and the noise and reverberation of the guns shook my apartment.
