Reflections and remembrance

ABC Wednesday

The letter this week is R - for Reflection and Remembrance

 
Ginty's Pond, rippled and with a few faint reflections
 
 
and now, the sky has fallen into Ginty's pond - a clear reflection of the hills and clouds and
the buildings that surround it....
 
Remembrance Day, 2013 at Memorial Park in Keremeos

Reminiscing with an old friend
 
 
and recalling past Remembrance Days.


For more great Rs visit here at ABC Wednesday.

Always a poignant day Hildred, particularly when one was married to an old serviceman.

A very special day, Hildred! There are not many left to tell about WW II. But we should remember those who died in the wars of the last age and this age too.
Thanks for your beautiful post!

Beautiful photographs, Hildred. My father was in WWII, but never saw action because his skills in photography were used for reconnaissance photography mostly in London. He was up in the Shetlands for a while also.

A special day and a difficult one for you I would think Hildred. I am glad there were old friends for sharing memories.

I love your "upside down" skies in the pond.

Hello Hildred, Remembering - it is sad but also brings a smile from all the happy memories. I like your photos today.

Thanks for your comment.
This is a wonderful area where you live. We walked from Vancouver to Cranbrook, all the way by foot with our two kids. The time spend there was wonderful. We've been to Keremeeos!
