Mate ship & Remembrance

My Photo scholarship 2011 entry

Australia | Monday, 7 November 2011 | 5 photos

My photos are a series of five. They capture the camaraderie, closeness, mate ship and sacrifice one man can give to another in the confines of battle. These were taken at the Shrine of Remembrance on St Kilda rd, Melbourne.
The Shrine, originally built to honour the 114,000 Victorians who served in the First World War, now serves to honour all Victorians who have served in war and peacekeeping operations.
This series depicts the Shrine itself, a statue of two 'Cobbers', Simpson & his donkey (with wounded), a battle hardened soldier with the 1000 yard stare and rounded off with the immortal words of 'Lest We Forget'.
About me….
My name is David Maloney and I'm 33. Photography is a passion/bug that i've been bitten by over the past 12 months. Although, being on this end of the camera is something I've always enjoyed. I think that I've always known that there was a love affair waiting to happen. I've been know to get on peoples nerves or go far out of my way to get a shot.
I have been lucky enough in life to follow one of my other passions, travel and the great outdoors. The first time I went overseas I was 10 (USA). And haven't looked back since. Spain, France, Russia, Egypt would have to be my top 4. I get a real kick out of meeting people on the journey and the stories they tell. Also the architecture, history and magnitude of cultures out there just top it off.
I love our planet and respect it. I do what I can to look after it and the wonders it holds.
I think you should pick me because I'm a hard worker, fun, passionate, bring enthusiasm to the table but most of all i'm I really don't know a lot about photography yet. I see this as a HUGE plus because I'm all ears and want to start in this profession on the right track with the right skills.
Thanks for listening.
