Remembrance Sunday Birmingham 2006
I have noticed that quite a few people are looking at my photographic record of Remembrance Sunday in 2005. I, therefore, took photos from my seat in the VIP stand plus a few others.
I have suggested that the City Council kept a documentary photographic record of major city events such as Remembrance Sunday and post them on the web. If I remember to chase this up it would be relatively easy to do. What is important is to do a better job with events than people such as the BBC. For example you should ensure that each of the groups attending is photographed. That is much like the Jang or Kashmir Post that photograph all the people at a meeting. The BBC editorially select what they think are good photos. That misses out much of what happens.
My difficulty is that often I am involved in the event such as playing the Guitar at St Patrick's day so I cannot do a proper record.
However, for remembrance Sunday 2006 in Birmingham's Centenary Square you need to start with a properly dressed Council House.
Note that the Council wishes people a Happy Christmas not a Happy Winterval.
The parade is gathered:
Most of the event is run from the Hall of Remembrance
and it ends with a march past the Lord Mayor
I have photographed all the main wreaths, but here are only a selection. If anyone asks me to update this with all of them I will.
