Australia Day 2008 – kids


There are few more vivid symbolic images of this nation during the Australia Day attesting to the anthems words “For we are young and free” then kids in the national colours. The traditional flag transfer on the chick, a flag wrapped around the shoulders and depending on the year another paraphernalia sold by the multitude of stalls.

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.

Australia Day 2007 – Fireworks


Fireworks are a traditional form of celebrating big events in Australia and this year was no different. From spectacular extravaganza of Sydney fireworks to small shows in country towns the sky was set to multicolour kaleidoscopes to celebrate Australia Day.

I was under the impression the attendances at the celebrations were bigger then ever and the national pride just a bit stronger than usual. There are many facts that influenced this with the single most prominent the failed attempt to ban Australian flag from the Big Day Out concert.

You can find further fireworks images in the photo gallery.
