At the going down of the sun
Today happens to be Anzac day, which is similar in concept to Memorial Day. This year the focus of the remembrance ceremonies have broadened to place more emphasis on the Western Front, which was after all the scene of the Anzac victories, unlike Gallipoli, which was an unmitigated disaster under British command.
About a week ago, on my way back from a meeting, there was a ceremony at the Cenotaph in Martin Place at about 20:22 local. The Canon G7 was more than equal to the low light and took this video. It provides a glimpse into the sort of traditions that are upheld down under and incidentally, what Sydney looks like by night.
