Project 52 - Week 14

If you follow my blog, you've probably noticed that I haven't been keeping up with my Project 52.  It looks like I've missed about 7 weeks.  I'm trying to decide if I just write off those 7 weeks or if I should try to make those weeks up.  What do you think?

This week for Project 52, the theme was Fusion.  I didn't really like the theme so I thought I would do my own thing.  However, after submitting my picture to the group, a number of comments have come back with ways that it can be applicable to the theme.  More to come on that later.

This past weekend, our friend LC (aka Clarkie) came out to visit from Brisbane.  We haven't seen LC in a long time so it was really nice to see him again and see what's been going on in his life.  We have a tradition when LC comes to visit that we play tourist in Canberra.  Last time he was here, we went to Parliment House and Questacon.  This time, we decided to go to the Australian War Memorial as neither he nor I had been there.

The day in Canberra turned out to be really nice - probably about 75 and absolutely beautiful.  This also meant that the War Memorial was very busy.  Either way, it turned out to be a great trip.  The musuem is very good.  If you ever decide to visit Canberra, I would highly suggest visiting the memorial.

While we were there, I told some of the iconic images of the memorial and they turned out pretty well.  For the most part, I was able to keep people out of the pictures but there is one with a man that just wouldn't move.  Let's see if you can spot him.  I decided to submit the picture of the Honor Wall with poppies as my Project 52 picture.

I've gotten a couple of comments with an interpretation on how this picture can be related to Fusion:  1) ANZAC is a fusion of words and 2) the fusion of life and death.  Pretty interesting interpretations.

Here are a couple more pictures I took while I was there.  The picture of the plane was HA's.

After our visit to the War Memorial, we decided to have lunch at the Belgium Beer Cafe in Kingston.  That didn't go so well.  HA is considering making a blog about our dining experiences - Out with Adam.  Check out the blog and leave him a comment to encourage him to make his first post!
