Fotoeins Friday: State Memorial in Kings Park, Perth
15 September 2012.*
It’s a beautiful warm afternoon for the final week of winter, and my friends in the western Australian city of Perth have suggested we spend the afternoon in one of their city’s parks, the Kings Park and Botanical Garden.
We arrive at the State War Memorial with (this east) view of the Swan River and the Darling Scarp (Darling Range, Perth Hills) in the distance. The war memorial includes the Flame of Remembrance (foreground) and the State War Memorial proper with Cenotaph and Court of Contemplation, an important site for commemorative events.
* The recorded high temperature for this date in metropolitan Perth was 26 degrees Celsius (79F): not bad for the final week of winter.
During my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 15 September 2012 with the Canon 450D, 50-prime, and the following settings: 1/1250-sec, f/8, ISO200, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-a14.
