Located in the city’s Royal Botanic Gardens, the Shrine of Remembrance commemorates Australians who served and died in the Great War (World War I).  The eternal flame burns just outside the memorial, and was lit in 1954 to commemorate the World War II.

I took at least a dozen photographs of this flame – it danced with me and flickered across the screen in various ways as I moved around and focused in and out of frame.  I like the ephemeral feeling of the hot fire in this one, and the delicate red flower resting just out of burn’s reach.
