Story behind the photograph
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.
