In its time zone, Sydney, Australia is always the first major city of the world to celebrate New year’s Eve. Thousands flock to vantage points all round Sydney Harbour which acts as a natural amphitheatre for our fireworks display.
From our position tonight we looked down on a bay full of moored sailing boats and lots of families sitting on the grass in a park on the water’s edge waiting for the show to begin.
This year’s theme was “Make your mark”, and the bridge sported a giant X for much of the evening, later changing to a peace sign, an exclamation mark, an asterisk and finally a hand with an open palm. Unfortunately by the finale the smoke was so thick I wasn’t able to capture a shot of the hand, but it’ll remain on the bridge, lit up nightly throughout January, so I’ll show you in a few days.
Thank you for your support and encouragement in 2010 - and your nice comments - and I look forward to sharing friendship and creative ideas in 2011.
