Ok, some of the pics. Hubby got me an awesome tripod the other day (thanks to Catz pointing out a sale ;) thank you) so next years should be better I hope ;) These pics were taken around 9 pm... Note how much daylight there still was. The fireworks started a little after 9. We just made it.

Trams all stopped at Federation Square

All the buildings looked beautiful with all the lights on. The church's bells were tolling most of the night, was awesome.

Swanston street (blurry, but you get to see all the people) and the bridge across the river. The streets were all closed off.

Great photos Polly. I love great photos as they compliment my scrapbooking hobby! Looks like you had a great time. It looks so light for 9pm!

It is SO hard to put the kids in bed in the evenings. The sun really only starts to go down around 9pm in summer it seems.

One day I guess I will have to try the scrapbooking thing :unsure:

With photos like these i think that you should give the scrap booking a go! I started it when i inherited boxes of photos from my parents after they passed away. I realised that they would be meaningless to my kids if i didnt organise them. I am keen to do a scrapbook about the whole immigration process as my kids are small and wont remember everything.

Keep the great photos coming!
