Lest we forget…

In observance of Remembrance Day, November 11th, I thought it fitting to display some pics I took in September as the body of one of our fallen Canadian soldiers passed through Oshawa on the Highway Of Heroes. On that same day, a Canadian Navy ship, the HMCS Ville de Quebec, was in port visiting Oshawa and many of her crew showed up at the highway overpass to join the citizens of Oshawa as well as Oshawa firefighters to pay their respects. It was a very moving scene as the hearse and the vehicles of the soldier’s family and friends passed by below us…

  1. Great photos. I love the B&W with the flag saturated. It is a great effect. The ships guns should be gray.
