Happy Australia Day 2015

So, this happened exactly 10 years ago.

I am lazy, so this is also a repost from exactly six years ago.

Here are a bunch of my photos from Australia Day 2005. I made my way to Sydney’s Darling Harbour to see one of the numerous city-wide firework shows. I was too far from the Harbour Bridge for the biggest show, and people there camp out all day for their seating spot. I left 45 minutes before showtime and was able to fit into the crowd. See the photo set here and hit the jump for more photos.

I really wish I could be there now.
