Veterans Day Wednesday

In honor of Veterans Day I am posting pictures from a recent trip to a local Veterans Memorial Park.  I have passed this park many times but the other day was inspired to stop and take pictures.

Many of the blogs that I follow participate in this meme, and I thought that this would be a good week to join in.  The letter of the week is Q, so here is a picture of 'quad.'

Love all your photo's- wordless wednesday! Awesome reminder of our freedom that wasn't free.
Sepia - cool - perfect for sepia!

Thanks for stopping by to tell me which camera you have. I went ahead & bought a Sonny
a230 SLR. I like everything about it except it is BIG & HEAVY! Also, enjoyed your Vetrans post. Glad so many of us remembered & honored all the guys & gals who serve.

A perfect series for today. I especially like the down the barrel composition of that third shot.

Welcome to ABC Wednesday. You chose a difficult letter to start, but you did well - QUAD is a good word, and well-illustrated!
On behalf of the Team, thanks for your post.

Wonderful photos and post for Veterans Day. Love the sepia shots, but I think my favorite is the first. I like the composition of the memorial with the helicopter in the background. Thanks for stopping by. I actually have the first shot as my desktop scene at work. Kathy

What a great tribute! Happy WW!

The mechanical sepia of the old military vehicle is wonderful. The tools of war aren't pretty but the necessary means of defending freedom...

The WW picture is somber, a memorial set alongside the parked warbird makes us think a bit more about our freedoms...

Rebecca said...

Very appropriate choice today! I like the perspective of your shots. Thanks for posting Midweek Blues!

All your Wednesday Memes combined is great but the best part is you remembrance of the Day for our Vets. I thought your use of the photo for quad was very smart. Thank you Carly from the wife of a vet Marine.

I had clicked over from the sepia meme and those are terrific but all the shots make this a really wonderful Veteran's Day post.
Well done!

Beautiful! I really love your Q shot. I haven't heard of that meme yet. I may have to check it out. I love all of your shots and they are so fitting for vetrans day. I really love how the sepia adds an air of vintage.
I finally had a minute so I came to see your Photo Hunt. But this post stopped me before I reached it. Great shots!

Every day is a good day to remember our soldiers.
It's good that we have these memorials to remind us that the live of real people are at stake.

Hi Carly, that old duece and a half brought back memories of my five years in the Army. I had a military drivers license and would haul troops around sitting in the back on those wooden seats. We always had a canvas cover strung on the bows across the back.

Thank you for the tour, Happy MidWeek Blues. Come see my post with the lonesome (and blue) cloud that cried. :-)

Great sepia photos of an army vehicle for Veteran's Day! :)

Lovely photos.

I used to live in Orlando...taught school there, too. It's changed so much, yet it is still the same. I love all the lakes hiding through the neighborhoods. My son went to UCF and has remained there, too.
