War - from another angle

An external view of the Australian War Memorial. You often see this building from the front, and it's a very angular, solid building from that direction. But from out here, in the grounds, it's softened by the green grass and the trees and hedges. There are many shaded, peaceful spots out here to contemplate just what this building represents, and there are some wonderful works of art as memorials to the people who sacrificed so much in various wars and battles. The one in the middle of this photo is the Sandakan memorial.
