No offence taken Dim, have been having trouble with Photobuckets new version and this was mainly a test, surprised at your lack of knowledge regarding history though.
I don't think Dim is asking what Armistice Day is for his own knowledge ... based on the context of his post, I think that he's encouraging you as the photographer to reflect on the question "What is Armistice Day?" and try to capture the answer in your image.
It's the same technique used by war photographers for example when instead of taking panoramas of widespread destruction, they instead capture a close up photograph of the tears and desolation on the face of a young child caught in the middle of the conflict. It shows so much less, but speaks so much more.
Yes that was my point I lived in the U.S. for 10 years so I do know it is Veteran's Day
