Story behind the photograph
Mounted police were present at the celebrations of Australia Day 2008 at Darling Harbour. The unit drew attention not because of the protection they provided but because the kids loved the horses and photographers (and most male participants) liked the gorgeous women the NSW police selected to represent them on the day.
I was lucky enough to draw attention of one of the friendly mounted police woman. Did I say they were pretty – this girl could become a photographic model any time?
I have captured a lot of scenes big and small from this year’s celebrations. Visit my Australia Day photographic gallery here to see the remaining photographs.
