Hindmarsh Island, South Australia Island magic

PhotoHunt theme for the week beginning 2nd March is ‘Steel’

Seeing the forces involved to bend steel from the New York World Trade Centre, USA terrorism attack at a memorial to Firefighters in Christchurch, New Zealand was a sobering and awe filled visit.

About the PhotoHunt

The Saturday PhotoHunt is a photography blog “meme” that was started in March 2006

To play, you simply post a photo on your own blog that represents the theme. These are snapshots that you might have taken on a trip, with your family, or in your home. It is important to use only your own photos.

We are not professional photographers . . . although some are. We are bloggers who are having fun with different themes and sharing our photography. You can see more PhotoHunt entries at Whistlestop PhotoHunt and on Facebook

  3. Jerry   WOW. I had no idea that pieces were shipped around the world - what a great way to remember the evil that was done and pay tribute to the victims. Great shot for this week's theme. Have a super weekend.

  9. YTSL   I'm amazed to learn that there are pieces of what once was New York's World Trade Center are now in New Zealand as part of a thought-provoking memorial.
