Waiting for a Princess.

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time to view, comment and vote on my image 'A Simple Rose' which I uploaded yesterday.

A further thank you goes to: Sue118 (Sue), Robert Turley, PhotographerJoe (Joe), Mollycat (Peter), JuBarney (Ju) and Netta1234 (Netta) for their User Awards.

I had a wonderful day yesterday with the highlight being attending the Queens Garden Party. The event was to celebrate the work of the Not Forgotten Association (See Link) and was attended by veterans from many of the Wars and Conflicts which have taken place over the past 80 years or so.

Although Her Majesty The Queen was not in attendance, Her Royal Highness Princess Anne and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy James Hamilton Laurence were. They took a lot of time to talk to and greet the veterans which was a great honoured "especially for me".

I hope you all have a great day whatever you may be getting up to, as for me I shall be taking things easy today.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin

Well done, Nathan.

In the cynical world of today, rest assured that there are a goodly number of people who fully appreciate the idea of service and sacrifice.
Good pictures!
Two lovely images with great attention to detail, wonderful capture, Nathan. SmileSmileSmileSmile
