Photographing Public Art Challenge #22:


Lest We Forget

I have been AWOL from this challenge for a couple of weeks because I was getting low on archived photos to share. However, I have been saving these photos because I wanted to post them close to Remembrance Day. These murals are on the outside walls of the Wynyard RSL (Returned & Services League). They are interesting. I believe that some of them commemorate local people who served in the armed forces. The murals are taken from old photographs but when you look closely each picture is made up of a mosaic of hundreds of tiny photos. If you are in our part of the world, I’d recommend a walk down Goldie Street to take a look at them.

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
