The idea is to take five photos in five minutes on the 5th of the month.
This 5th of November, Mr Man & I finally visited, without the crowds, the Lt Col John McCrae's memorial statue. It was created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the writing of the poem in Flanders Field, from the battlefields of Flanders during World War I. Lt Col McCrae is originally from Guelph, Ontario & he died shortly after penning his famous poem. Last year Mr Man & I attended the live satellite service reading of the poem from Flanders Field, before the statue was installed. I am using this visit for some of my Wednesday SNAP collection.

This will be a very busy place this coming Friday, November 11th for Remembrance Day services.
